This book describes and analyses the links between the growth of mass higher education systems and the radical processes of globalization which include not only round-the-clock, round-the-globe markets and new information technologies but revolutionary conceptions of time and space. Higher education is implicated as creator, interpreter and sufferer of these trends. The Globalization of Higher Education attempts to make sense of the connections between the expansion (and diversification) of higher education - including the increasing emphasis on international collaboration and the recruitment of international students - and the development of global politics, markets and culture. It offers a variety of perspectives, including those of national policies (from the UK, Europe and South Africa), of the European Union, of the Commonwealth, and of UNESCO.

This is the first, significant attempt to put the transformation of higher education within the context of more general globalization.
