Higher Education and International Student Mobility in the Global Knowledge Economy: Revised and Updated Second Edition
Guruz, Kemal
SUNY Press
Students and scholars leaving their homes in search of education and knowledge is not a new phenomenon. An indispensable resource for understanding the international mobility of students, this book reveals how the global mobility of such students, scholars, programs, and institutions of higher education have evolved over time. Kemal Guruz explores the contributions that the international mobility of students has made to scientific and technological progress, and the ways in which it is occurring in today's global economy. The second edition of this widely praised study is completely revised and updated, tracing international mobility in higher education through the first decade of the twenty-first century. Appended are: (1) Data on Enrollment and Expenditures in National Systems and International Student Mobility; (2) Definition of Terms Related to Evaluation and Quality Assurance; (3) The European Credit Transfer and Accumulation System and the Diploma Supplement; (4) Recognition of Qualifications in Europe; (5) Education, Training, and Youth Programs of the European Union; (6) Definitions of Foreign Students; and (7) General Agreement on Trade in Services. Foreword by Nancy L. Zimpher. Notes, bibliography and an index are included.
