The experience of the Department of Wood, Cellulose and Paper (WC&P) for the implementation of online international graduate courses is described. Currently, the WC&P has a master program in Forest Products. Two years ago, the WC&P started a total reengineering process of its pedagogic and research activities including the design and implementing of a new Ph. D international program on Biosustainable Materials. There are many issues to face in order to establish international online graduate courses: human resources, English skills (both faculty and students), innovative courses, international faculty recruitment, and economic and material resources. Both, the Foreign Languages International Program (FLIP) and the WC&P designed a strategy including preparation of human resources in Content and Language Integrated Learning (CLIL) methodology by the institution Educluster Finland, identification of stakeholders, student recruiting and innovative pedagogy and practices. The WC&P is interested in having graduate programs participating actively on the global Network Learning Program. After working two years, we are in the last stage to begin the delivering of international courses.
