Inside Higher Ed
June 1st, 2015
Hundreds of thousands of students internationally are enrolled in
institutions that were created and are led by colleges and universities
or academics from other countries. While this form of education has
become increasingly important to students and both host countries and
exporting nations, a lack of common terminology, data collection and
regulation creates problems both for students and countries, according
to a new report.
The report was released here today at Going Global, the international
education conference of the British Council. The report -- by the
British Council and the German Academic Exchange Service -- is based on
an in-depth study of 10 countries where international campuses operate.
The report calls such campuses part of “transnational education”
(TNE) and includes in that category both freestanding institutions and
those that are branch campuses of universities elsewhere.
