Internationalization of Higher Education in East Asia : Trends of student mobility and impact on education governance Hardback

Edited by Ka-Ho (Lingnan University, Hong Kong) Mok, Kar Ming (The Education University of Hong Kong, Hong Kong) Yu

Part of the Routledge Critical Studies in Asian Education series

Hardback

Description

The rise in demand for higher education in the Asia-Pacific region is an undeniable reflection of the growing pace of globalization and the subsequent pressures imposed by it.

Aspiring to become globally competitive and to position favourably in the global university league tables, governments in Asia have either engaged in a serious quest to become a regional education hub or they have concentrated on developing transnational higher education to create more opportunities, in order to meet their citizens' pressing demand for higher education.

Internationalization of Higher Education in East Asia critically examines and provides comparative perspectives on the major strategies that selected Asian countries and societies have adopted to transform their higher education sector and enhance their national competitiveness in the increasingly globalized world.

This volume by leading scholars in the field of education development and policy studies makes critical reflections on how Asian governments in particular and universities in general have responded to the growing challenges of globalization by promoting more internationalization, student mobility and entrepreneurship in higher education.

This book is an essential collection for policy makers, researchers and postgraduate students studying higher education, Asian education and international education.
