Globalisation of Higher Education

This latest volume in the Learning in Higher Education series, Globalisation of Higher Education, explores the idea that globalisation is both an opportunity and a challenge to higher education. Universities open up branches in foreign countries. New educational partnerships are being established across borders. We see globalisation of higher education on the rise everywhere. Is there a perfect model of globalisation of higher education? The editors think not. Nevertheless, they believe that we can learn a lot from studying excellent contextual globalisation practices taking place at universities around the world. This book presents 11 cases of globalisation of higher education. The cases are grouped within four perspectives: 1) political perspectives 2) institutional perspectives 3) cultural perspectives 4) personal perspectives.

Globalisation of Higher Education examines how universities are currently dealing with globalisation. Chapters are written by faculty members and administrators at universities, who all share the knowledge and practice of having developed international, transnational, or global offerings in form of educational programmes and courses. They describe their challenges, and how they have dealt with those.
