Moreover, it outlines national and international level factors in the form of policies and strategies, which are in place to support and boost the incoming and outgoing international mobility of students.
In addition, the publication offers analysis on the relevance of language in academic migration trends, the current and future capacities of higher education sectors throughout various countries and the national- and international-level initiatives aiding mobility.
