Reviews

"Rajika Bhandari and Peggy Blumenthal’s book is a welcome addition to the academic literature on the scope and impact of this growing trend in the context of a very dynamic global higher education market. The authors are to be congratulated for this excellent contribution that can guide countries and higher education institutions all over the world in thinking strategically about student mobility." - Jamil Salmi, Tertiary Education Coordinator, The World Bank, and author of The Challenge of Establishing World-Class Universities

"International Students and Global Mobility in Higher Education provides a useful worldwide perspective on key trends and issues relating to flows of students and programs across borders. The book provides excellent regional coverage and has outstanding authors." - Philip G. Altbach, Monan University Professor, Boston College, and co-author of Trends in Higher Education, Tracking a Global Revolution

"This book constitutes an important contribution to the stock of knowledge about international student mobility, a central piece in most institutional, national and regional efforts to internationalize higher education. How mobility patterns are changing, what impact these changes have and what the future may hold are all important to all those interested in higher education development." - Eva Egron-Polak, Secretary General, International Association of Universities, and author of Internationalization of Higher Education: Global Trends; Regional Perspectives
