The Internationalisation of Higher Education

The Internationalisation of Higher Education

Description

This book investigates the different perspectives of lecturers and students on the internationalisation of higher education and compares these perspectives with policy at a case study university. In particular, the ways students and lecturers are responding to cultural and linguistic diversity in the classrooms is examined. This diversity is neither unique to the case study university nor a new phenomenon, as universities have always had an international capacity and students from other countries. However, the number of higher education students travelling abroad to study has grown so significantly that higher education has become an increasingly important part of the global economy. Simultaneously, cultural diversity in university classrooms is more ubiquitous than at any time in history, and this presents both challenges and advantages for staff, students and university management.
