Germany – top perfomer for international higher education

In the recent report “The Shape Of Global Higher Education: National Policies Framework For International Engagement” by Brirish Council Germany and Malaysia have been singled out as the best performers in regards to openness to international higher education. The aim of the study was to enable policymakers to help their universities internationalise and forge collaborations by using the data.

The report published on 4 May, 2016 examines policies in 26 nations by assessing them against 37 qualitative indicators. The indicators can be clustered in three broad categories – openness to international mobility for students and academics; domestic and cross-border education quality assurance and recognition of overseas qualifications; and fair access and sustainability in terms of countering potential negatives such as brain drain. Giving each category equal weighting, the overall top five perfomers are Germany, Australia, the UK, Malaysia and China.

“Given the growing prominence of government engagement in international higher education, and the interdependencies between national HE systems, there is a need for greater co-ordination between policies with a view to achieving greater impact,” concludes the report.
