This indicator looks at the ratio of international faculty staff to overall staff. If an institution is attracting a sizeable population of international faculty this has benefits in terms of the research and teaching diversity and collaboration. Further, if an institution is attracting a sizeable number of overseas staff it follows that it is attractive enough to do so.
- The term ‘international’ is determined by citizenship.
- For EU countries, this includes all foreign nationals, even nationals of other EU states. In Hong Kong SAR, this includes staff from China (Mainland).
- In the case of dual citizenship, the deciding criteria should be citizenship obtained through birth, or first passport obtained.
- Visiting international faculty staff who are of foreign origin but members of a university other than the one under submission are NOT be counted under this category.
