THE PLAYING FIELD - International Campuses on the Rise

Met dank overgenomen van Higher edge, gepubliceerd op woensdag 9 september 2009.

According to a study by the Observatory for Borderless Higher Education, a British Research Institute, international branch campuses have risen by 43% in the last three years.

Branch campuses are institutions that have the name of and are run by a foreign institution and that award full degrees from that institution.  Of such campuses, the United States has 78, followed by Australia with 14, Britain with 13 and France and Britain tied at 11.

The top host country is the United Arad Emirates (UAE) with 40, a quarter of the total.  The attraction to the UAE lies in its high demand for tertiary education and its wealth of oil income which allows the government to provide incentives for foreign institutions.  China follows with 15, Singapore 12, Qatar 9 and Canada 6.
