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 provide 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)

This new and exciting book examines the challenges and issues that international students face during their student mobility lifecycle and how these issues are culturally situated such as based on their country of origin, the countries they visit, their faith and the type of institution. A brilliant book for anyone who is currently or intending to be a professional in international education. —Dr. Anesa Hosein, Programme Director of Ph.D. in Higher EducationUniversity of Surrey, Co-author of, Academics’ International Teaching Journeys: Personal Narratives of Transitions in Higher Education. Bloomsbury (2018)
