Palfreyman, David – Perspectives: Policy and Practice in Higher Education, 2013

de Wit, Hans; Ferencz, Irina; Rumbley, Laura E. – Perspectives: Policy and Practice in Higher Education, 2013
The most striking trend in international student mobility over the past forty years is the increase in the number of globally circulating students, from approximately 250,000 in 1965, up to an estimated 3.7 million at present (OECD 2011: 320, UNESCO 2006: 34). Perhaps as important as the growing numbers of students is the fact that the traditional…

Raffe, David – Perspectives: Policy and Practice in Higher Education, 2013
Since 1998-99, when the Scottish Parliament, National Assembly for Wales and Northern Ireland Assembly were established, higher education policies appear to have diverged across the four "home countries" of the UK.

The article discusses higher education policies and policy making during the period of the author's direct involvement between the mid-80s and the present.

Lane, Laura; Birds, Rachel – Perspectives: Policy and Practice in Higher Education, 2013
This paper explores the value of explaining contextual admissions policy directives through the conceptual lenses of meritocracy and social reproduction.

Universities are expected to play a…
