About this book

This book examines current trends in global student mobility patterns in several key host and destination countries, including the United States, China, India, South Africa, Mexico, Australia, and Germany, among others, and will explore the national and global-level factors that contribute to these trends.

About the authors

Global student mobility is one of the fastest growing phenomena in higher education in the twenty-first century. Over three million students are currently mobile, crossing geographic, cultural, digital, and educational borders in the pursuit of an international education - a movement that has significant consequences for higher education institutions and nations worldwide. International Students and Global Mobility in Higher Education: National Trends and New Directions examines current trends in global student mobility in key destination and sending countries, including large hosts like the U.S., U.K., Germany, and Australia and newer players such as China, India, and the educational hubs of the Middle East. Experts from these countries, and others, offer timely analysis for higher education policymakers, practitioners, and researchers, of how national-level investments and developments affect academic migration trends; the current and future capacity of countries to accommodate a growing demand for a higher education; and the implications of mobility for the labor market and economy.

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, Global Tertiary Education Expert, former 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
