On International Students in European Universities

As economic troubles continue to plague Europe, universities here are ramping up their efforts to recruit tuition-paying students overseas. At the same time, more European academics are asking whether these students are being treated well, challenging institutions to think less about the bottom line and more about how to create a truly international campuses.

We are in the eye of a perfect storm that is being shaped by two global trends. The first is the demise of universities in the West; there is hardly an educational institution in the Western world that is not facing some sort of crisis. The second global trend is the rise of Asia and the demand there is, especially in India, China, Korea, Vietnam, and Malaysia, for world-class education.”
