Abstract

The internationalisation of Higher Education is a major thrust for EU Universities. This article examines how the curriculum can be designed to not only accommodate different and disparate cultures, but also enhance the cultural experience for all concerned. Using Peirce’s writings on critical thinking, we describe how a research-informed curriculum can deliver an improved experience for postgraduate learners.
