The concept of “HE Internationalization” rooted in the widespread current perception of policy in world Higher Education. Internationalization as a process based on economic, cultural, scientific, and political transactions that are based on consensus among interacting nation. The concept refers to “the process of integrating an international/intercultural dimension into the teaching, research and service functions of the higher education institution (Knight, 1994)”. There are 5 major reasons for Internationalization of Higher Educations: a) to improve student preparedness, b)Internationalize curricula, c)Enhance an institution’s international profile, d)Bolster research and knowledge production and e)Diversify faculty and staff (Marmolejo, 2012). Internationalization of Higher Education helps communities to develop university systems that cover global interests and produce a skilled workforce with cosmopolitan awareness and multi-cultural competencies. Moreover, Internationalization of Higher Education permits a nation to expand and elevate its countrywide and international profiles; institutional strengths through strategic partnerships; enlarge the academic community and benchmark scholarly achievements; mobilize domestic intellectual resources; add significant contemporary learning outcomes to student experience; and develop stronger research groups(Hamidifar et al., 2017). SU also considers opportunities to guarantee academic sustainability of its academic environment through internationalization process.
