International Students and Global Mobility in Higher Education: National Trends and New Directions. International and Development Education
Bhandari, Rajika, Ed.; Blumenthal, Peggy, Ed.
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. This book contains the following: (1) Global student mobility and the 21st century silk road: National trends and new directions (Rajika Bhandari & Peggy Blumenthal); (2) Mobility strategies and trends: the case of China (Yang Xinyu); (3) India's growing influence in international student mobility (Pawan Agarwal); (4) International student mobility: a European perspective from Germany and the UK (Christian Bode & Martin Davidson); (5) Understanding international mobility in a U.S. context (Allan E.
