National Trends and New Directions
Edited By Rajika Bhandari and Peggy Blumenthal
Global student mobility is one of the fastest-growing phenomena in higher education in the twenty-first century. Over four million students are currently mobile, crossing geographic, cultural, digital, and educational borders in the pursuit of an international education. International Students and Global Mobility in Higher Education examines current trends in global student mobility in key destination and sending countries, including the US, the UK, 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.
