The International Mobility of Students in Asia and the Pacific

UNESCO – Asia and Pacific Regional Bureau for Education. The International Mobility of Students in Asia and the Pacific. 2013. Pages: 89.

With an exclusive focus on the Asian and the Pacific area, this report successfully manages to shift the focus of attention to some regularly neglected sending countries and study destinations for international student mobility. Compiled by members of the UNESCO Education Research Institute Network (ERI-net), the report summarises seven papers which were presented at the Regional Seminar on the International Mobility of Students in 2011. The report itself was published in 2013, but only made available at the end of January 2014. After a comprehensive introduction on student mobility, push and pull factors as well as consequences and implications, the report provides a detailed summary of the state of affairs in Australia, China, Indonesia, South Korea, Malaysia, the Philippines and Thailand in seven separate articles. Apart from up-to-date figures and relevant data on the respective country, each article provides a detailed picture of the current situation of international student mobility, including incoming and outgoing student mobility, government regulatory policy, specific modes of provision such as branch campuses, as well as policy and administrative implications. Overall, a very comprehensive and interesting report.
