International Student Recruitment to Universities in England: Discourse, Rationales and Globalisation
Bolsmann, Chris; Miller, Henry
Globalisation, Societies and Education, v6 n1 p75-88 2008
The recruitment of international students to universities in England has become a central issue in an era of globalisation for university administrators, senior managers, international offices and heads of schools and faculties. We examine the policy rationales for the recruitment of international students to England. Through the use of in-depth interviews with key role players at four English universities, we compare the rhetoric, rationales and reasons for the recruitment of international students. A range of discourses can be identified in the recruitment of international students and an economic competition rationale is dominant. This is expressed within the discourse of globalisation.
