De Howest opleidingen bieden ook talrijke ‘Internationalisation at Home’ initiatieven, zoals het uitnodigen van buitenlandse gastdocenten en studentendelegaties, of deelname aan internationale projecten waarbij de afstanden via digitale samenwerking overbrugd worden.

Elke campus heeft ook International Days. Op die manier komen zelfs de meest honkvaste Howesters in contact met de internationale dimensie van hun studie- of werkgebied.
