International Higher Education

Research themes

This research program focuses on challenging the status quo and strengthening the evidence base for sustainable international higher education through four key and interrelated lenses:

  • The geopolitical context and the impact on international and domestic students locally, nationally and globally.
  • International students’ experiences in Australia, and broadening perspectives on developing a host culture community within higher education and beyond.
  • Strengthening the quality and flexibility of courses.
  • The nature, shifting characteristics and prospects of transnational education for Australia, its region and globally.
