Dr Jenna Mittelmeier

Lecturer in International Education
The University of Manchester

My research expertise focuses broadly on internationalisation of higher education. I am particularly interested in international students’ transition experiences, pedagogies with international students, and curriculum internationalisation. My work takes a critical perspective on issues of power, privilege, and ethics in international higher education.

In my teaching role, I am the Associate Director for PGR Training in the School of Environment, Education, and Development. I also lead an MA-level course unit about ‘Internationalising the Curriculum’.

Finally, I am the Research in Context editor for Journal of International Students and welcome contact about potential articles that fit the criteria of this section.
