In the last decade, we have witnessed new forms of cross-border post-secondary education. These forms not only include international student mobility, but also the mobility of educational programmes and institutions across borders.

Until now, however, there has been no comprehensive account of these activities at the global level. This book fills the gap by bringing together up-to-date statistics, case studies and policy reports. It analyses the major trends and developments in cross-border post-secondary education in North America, Europe, and the Asia Pacific region. It identifies the rationales of stakeholders and the major approaches to cross-border education. It then focuses on the main challenges that the rapid growth in cross-border education presents for policies both at the national and international levels. Topics covered include:

Policy initiatives to promote cross-border post-secondary education.
Individual, institutional and country rationales for delivering or receiving cross-border education services.
Size and growth of cross-border post-secondary education in terms of student mobility, programme mobility (e.g. e-learning) and institutional mobility (e.g. international branch campuses and foreign direct investments).
Assessment of the possible impact of the General Agreement on Trade in Services (WTO).
Challenges facing cross-border post-secondary education as well as domestic post-secondary education systems in a context of growing internationalisation (e.g. regulation in terms of quality assurance and recognition of qualifications, cost and financing, equity of access, trade agreements, capacity building in receiving countries, mobility of highly skilled personnel, cultural diversity).

"Internationalisation and Trade in Higher Education: Opportunities and Challenges" will be of particular interest to policy makers, researchers, and others involved in post-secondary education.

FURTHER READING
A companion volume, "Quality and Recognition in Higher Education: The Cross-border Challenge," examines national and international frameworks on recognition of qualifications.
