Policy options for managing international student migration: the sending country's perspective / Gribble, Cate / Association for Tertiary Education Management [Australia].-- IN: Journal of Higher Education Policy and Management, vol. 30, no. 1, pp. 25-39, 2008 - ISSN: 1360-080x
CONTENTS: A consequence of the dramatic rise in international student mobility is the trend for international students to remain in the country in which they study after graduation. Countries such as Australia, the UK and Canada stand to benefit from international student migration, as they are able to fill skill shortages with locally trained foreign students who also expand the demand for goods and services and add to gross national production. This paper will consider the impacts of international student migration on sending countries and discuss the policy responses

ISSN: 0020-8566
CONTENTS: Since the end of the apartheid era in South Africa,'internationalization' of higher education has been a popular theme as the country takes its place as a regional leader in education and research in sub-Saharan Africa. However, competing discourses of internationalization have produced economic and moral dilemmas rather than the realization of philanthropic academic aims. The process of internationalizing higher education in South Africa has been greatly compromised by under-funding and overcrowding of post-secondary education institutions in the country.

Globalisation, the "idea of a university" and its ethical regimes ( La mondialisation, "l'idée d'une université" et ses codes d'éthique ). / Marginson, Simon / OECD IMHE Programme.-- IN: Higher Education Management and Policy; Politiques et gestion de l'enseignement supérieur, vol. 19, no. 1, pp. 31-46, 2007 - ISSN: 1682-3451
CONTENTS: This paper sketches the impact of globalisation and internationalisation on the terrain of values and ethics in higher education. The first part of the paper discusses values and ethics in higher education in relation to the "Idea of a University", and identifies the ethical regimes essential to the functioning of HEIs as knowledge-forming organisations. The second part draws out implications of globalisation. Globalisation together with the strengthening of executive steering are associated with the partial "disembedding" of higher education institutions from their national governments, along with a pluralisation both of their spheres of operation and the range of private goods and public goods they produce and of the public they serve. This raises new questions about the governance and management of the values and ethical regimes associated with global goods, e.g. the obligations of communicability, mutuality, academic freedom, the protection of persons in higher education suggested by cross-border relationships, and the modes whereby these values and ethics are promoted.

International dimension in engineering education / Borri, C.; Guberti, E.; Melsa, J. / European Society for Engineering Education [SEFI].-- IN: European Journal of Engineering Education, vol. 32, no. 6, pp. 627-637, 2007 - ISSN: 0304-3797
CONTENTS: Engineers of the 21st century will spend appreciable portions of their careers in environments rich with global connections. Therefore, engineering colleges and universities must develop strategies that provide the global perspectives and international experiences that will help their graduates excel in this new world order. The current paper presents some European and American approaches to creating multi-organizational, international partnerships of academic and industrial organizations that emphasize collaborative educational programmes and research efforts that meet the globalization needs of faculty members, students, and industry.
International activity or internationalisation strategy? : insights from an institutional pilot study in the UK / Middlehurst, Robin; Woodfield, Steve / European Higher Education Society [EAIR].-- IN: Tertiary Education and Management, vol. 13, no. 3, pp. 263-279, 2007 - ISSN: 1358-3883
CONTENTS: Set in a context of increasing competition and changing dimensions of internationalisation, the paper offers an analysis of one institution's approach to changing its strategy and practice in the light of both the external context and internal drivers to internationalise. The reseach methodology was based on OECD/IMHE's Internationalisation Quality Review tool (1999). The findings provide insights into strategy development and internationalisation and how both are experienced by students and staff. While the detail is drawn from one UK institution, comparison at a more general level are made with institutional approaches to internationalisation in other UK institutions.
International student mobility: pattern and trends / Verbik, Line; Lasanowski, Veronica / . 2007. 48 p.
CONTENTS: The international student market is changing. An increasing number of higher education opportunities for study at home and abroad is contributing to rising competition in the international student market. In an attempt to attract the growing number of prospective students seeking higher education, individual institutions and national governments are looking to differentiate themselves from their competitors. In an attempt to do so, they are developing and implementing targeted recruitment strategies to grow new markets or expand in already established ones. Motivational factors in the decision-making process for student application to an overseas destination include employment and residency opportunities, the quality of the `student experience', including accommodation and social activities, and the costs associated with an international education. Through an analysis of national data produced by official government sources, this report provides a comprehensive overview of recent patterns in international student mobility, assesses current factors influencing government policy towards strategic recruitment and identifies future trends likely to affect mobility in coming years.
International university ranking systems and the idea of university excellence / Taylor, Paul; Braddock, Richard / Association for Tertiary Education Management [Australia].-- IN: Journal of Higher Education Policy and Management, vol. 29, no. 3, pp. 245-260, 2007 - ISSN: 1360-080X
CONTENTS: We look at some of the theoretical and methodological issues underlying international university ranking systems and, in particular, their conceptual connection with the idea of excellence. We then turn to a critical examination of the two best-known international university ranking systems - the Times Higher Education Supplement (THES) World University Rankings and the Shanghai Jiao Tong Academic Ranking of World Universities. We assess the various criteria used by the two systems and argue that the Jiao Tong system, although far from perfect, is a better indicator of university excellence. Based on our assessments of these two systems, we suggest how an ideal international university ranking system might look, concluding with some comments on the uses of ranking systems.

Internationalisation of higher education in the era of globalisation: what have been its implications in China and Japan? (L'internationalisation de l'enseignement supérieur à l'ère de la mondialisation: ses répercussion en Chine et au Japon). / Huang, Futao / OECD IMHE Programme.-- IN: Higher Education Management and Policy; Politiques et gestion de l'enseignement supérieur, vol. 19, no. 1, pp. 47-62, 2007 - ISSN: 1682-3451CONTENTS: This article describes the internationalisation of higher education in the era of globalisation in China and Japan. It presents the following issues: the relationship between internationalisation and globalisation; major characteristics of the internationalisation of higher education; a comparison between China and Japan; and the results of globalisation based on case studies from the two countries. The article concludes that globalisation has led to changes in the internationalisation of higher education in China and Japan, but not changed the most essential part of internationalisation of higher education in either country.La internacionalización de la educación superior.

ISSN: 0020-8566
CONTENTS: The paper commences with an attempt to define multicultural education (also referred to as intercultural education) with reference to its historical development and current uses of the term. The rise of international schools is then addressed as a necessary preamble to a definition of international education from an historical perspective; a comparison with multicultural education sharpens the definition. The author goes on to propose that intercultural understanding is a principal, common objective of multicultural and international education and should serve to bring together scholars and practitioners in both fields whereas the literature and practice shows them, by and large, operating independently with little reference, one to the other. Greater collaboration can only be of mutual benefit in achieving common objectives and improving practice. The paper concludes with some suggestions for collaborative research across both fields.
