Abstract

Internationalization of tertiary education has become an important agenda of the Malaysian government. As one of the public universities in Malaysia, Universiti Kebangsaan Malaysia (UKM) has been offering international student program at undergraduate level in two faculties since 2007. As a foundation to review the setting of the program in UKM, this paper examines the case of international program support in Kyushu University, Japan, by identifying the underlying elements that help enrich international students' experience. The case showed that internationalization effort in Kyushu University is initiated and executed in a concerted manner, with very careful planning from the government, internal department and various local parties.
