This volume explores in detail global student mobility and the growing internationalisation of higher education. This edited collection looks at the experience of students and the tensions and dilemmas associated with their adjustment into the academic, social and cultural environment in their host communities. The contributions in this volume document and investigate these issues through several case studies of global student mobility in settings in Malaysia, Australia and China, as well as programs associated with East Timor, Hong Kong and Singapore. The linkage between global student mobility and the Asia Pacific is strong as Asian students make up the majority of students who study in universities outside their own country. In some ways global student mobility is an expression of both the growing aspirations for higher education and the mobility of the people in the Asia Pacific region to undertake study across the globe.
