The Future of Higher-Education Internationalization

It is suggested that the traditional concept or definition of ‘internationalization of higher education’, such as mobility of students, is no longer sufficient to address a much more complex and changing reality nowadays. Many scholars have called for a revisit of the traditional concept of higher education internationalization and critical examination of the causes that are leading to some questioning and even criticism of the concept. Internationalization now may embrace the internationalization of curriculum, research, the offering of dual degrees with overseas partners, establishment of branch campuses/ offices abroad, engagement of international alumni, adoption of international quality assurance frameworks, increased competition for international students and much more.
