MOBILITY AND DIVERSITY : DEVELOPING GLOBAL CITIZENS

Changing Tides in Student Mobility in Asia

ABSTRACT:
When discussing internationally-mobile students, Asia dominates the conversation. Indeed, the APAIE region has emerged as the most important and dynamic in world when looking at trends in transnational & cross-border education. But patterns in international student decision-making & mobility in Asia are substantially shifting. The currents are increasingly intra-regional, with emerging destinations overtaking established ones. Recent political circumstances within Asia (as well as those outside of the region) have accelerated these changes and have upturned expectations. How can universities within the region & beyond effectively take advantage of these trends to identify, recruit and attract qualified international students from Asia? Within this interactive session, we will draw upon the expertise & perspectives from a variety of seasoned international education leaders to shed light on opportunities and challenges ahead in the region. Data & resources will be highlighted to help you to develop strategies and best practices to advance your outreach goals in Asia.

LEARNING OBJECTIVES:
- understand new patterns in international student decision-making & mobility in Asia.
- develop data-driven strategies and best practices to advance university outreach & student recruitment goals in Asia.
- leverage recent shifts in int'l student mobility & decision-making to identify, recruit and attract qualified international students from Asia.
- Session is designed to support universities outside of the region, as well as universities located in Asia.
