‘Chaos and Confusion’

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.
