Reviews and Testimonials

Going abroad has long been a rite-de-passage for young people. But now, in a world of lifelong learning in the context of rapid change, “mobility” is an almost required corollary of living a good life. As demonstrated by authors of this collection, almost nothing matches the thrills and spills of studying far from home.

– Prof. Dr. Roger Boshier, University of British Columbia, Canada

This edited collection of original studies provides invaluable insights into a critical void in the study of transnational educational interactions, student mobilities, and neoliberal globalization in comparative higher education systems with important implications for remapping international student support services and internationalization strategies.

– Dr. Asabe Poloma, Assistant Dean for International Students, Brown University (USA)
