Commonwealth Student Flows in an International Perspective: Update and Model for Future Monitoring.
This report provides updated information (as of 1988) on student mobility between British Commonwealth members, reviews reports from a consultative group examining how student mobility among member countries can be fostered, and provides a comparative analysis of student inflows for member countries. Analyses include student flows between Commonwealth and non-Commonwealth members as well as the major outflows. In addition, policy and program developments appearing since August 1986 that affect student mobility in principal Commonwealth countries are reviewed; these discussions include other international higher education exchange policies and programs. The report further provides analysis of the proportion of women in Commonwealth higher education from selected countries, and a statistical evaluation of the proportion of women receiving Commonwealth Student Fellowship Awards. Concluding sections discuss the monitoring of student flows; the issues, directions, and trends in monitoring; a suggested format, data elements, and analytic categories for future monitoring; and a summarization of the chief concerns and interests relating to student mobility that have emerged internationally over the past 5 years.
