Student Mobility & the Internationalization of Higher Education

A Project Atlas® Report

Over the last decade, the number of students studying outside of their home country grew at an unprecedented rate. While most of the traditional host countries are seeing the numbers of international students continue to rise, newly emerging hosts in the developing world have entered the competitive higher education market and are re-mapping the unidirectional flow of global talent.

This book is a compilation of reports on student mobility trends and internationalization policies in six world regions. It includes the latest data on inbound and outbound students in 17 countries and highlights national and institutional strategies for internationalizing higher education.

Project Atlas® is a collaborative research and data-sharing initiative focused on collecting and disseminating accurate data on student mobility and examining the broader global implications of student migration.
