Internationalisation of the sport industry has resulted in a demand for integration of international perspectives into the sport management higher education curriculum, to produce graduates capable of working within this rapidly developing global industry. Internationalisation of the curriculum can occur both abroad (i.e., study tour) or at home (i.e., within institution). A collaborative internationalisation at home (IaH) sport management curriculum research project was undertaken between the University of Worcester (the United Kingdom) and La Trobe University (Australia) sport management programmes in 2010. Reflections from the student cohorts and participating academics are presented to provide a case study of a teaching and learning collaboration and to address the lack of individual voice in internationalisation discourse. The results of this study indicate that there are benefits to classroomlevel intervention. However, working within the institutional environment presents challenges to the development and implementation of such projects.
