Student mobility has been shown to provide mobile students with social, economic and cultural benefits (Rundstrom Williams, 2005; Carlson & Widaman, 1988; Clarke, Flaherty, Wright, & McMillan, 2009). However, there are only a limited number of students who are able to go on mobility. ‘Internationalisation at Home’ (IaH) is the purposeful in-tegration of international and intercultural dimensions into the formal and informal curriculum for all students within domestic learning environments (Beelen & Jones, 2015). Within these integrated practices, non-mobile students are given the opportunity to interact with international peers. However, the nature of interactions between non-mobile and mobile students have yet to be studied in depth. To fill in this research gap, the Erasmus+ Student and Alumni Association (ESAA) conducted an online survey targeted at both mobile and local students.
