Higher Education is a profoundly important sector worldwide and one which makes an increasingly significant economic and social contribution. Like almost all other areas of economic activity it has become more globalized over the last 30 years. The number of international students has increased fourfold in a generation and international research collaborations have doubled over the last decade.
The drivers behind, consequences of and future prospects for the globalization of higher education are attracting increasing interest worldwide, but especially in Asia.
This volume draws on the diverse expertise of academic researchers, policy makers and educational practitioners to address the changing patterns of competition and provision, in international higher education. Topics addressed range from policy, provision, teaching, research, business engagement and regional perspectives of higher education.
