This paper explores issues for internationalising the curriculum through student mobility in tertiary education. Consideration is given to the institutional context and policies and procedures that support different levels of international engagement. Issues for the content and delivery of culturally sensitive curriculum are discussed, alongside appropriate assessment tasks and strategies. The experiences of mobility students from two universities, in Malaysia and Australia provide useful insights in how to develop teaching and learning practices that support international mobility engagement.
