Not being international is not an option anymore for students and academics. The labor market is global, demands are global, and research has always been international in nature. Various studies in recent years have also shown that if you want to be successful – inside or outside of academia – you need to be internationally minded. If you think you are not international enough yet, what can you do? In this chapter I introduce five ingredients of your recipe for international success: (1) mobility, (2) choosing an international co-supervisor, (3) referencing international literature, (4) participating in international events, and (5) considering international topics or methodologies.
