Venue: School of Education, University of Glasgow
To celebrate Glasgow’s hosting of the 2014 Commonwealth Games, the CEC’s Regional Conference will be held at the University of Glasgow on 2nd April 2014. and will explore student mobility in the Commonwealth. Themes addressed will include Commonwealth student mobility in a global context, experiences from Scotland and other parts of the UK, and their direct and indirect implications.
Global student mobility has been growing fast and there are now probably 4 million higher education students studying outside their home country. Commonwealth countries engage directly in this, acting as both destination and source countries for international students. This conference will examine specific contemporary Commonwealth perspectives on mobility, including its impact on small states, the implications of the changing patterns of destination countries (for example Ghana, Malaysia and Mauritius), financing mobility and the cultural and learning experiences of students. The Conference proceedings and outcomes will be published and emerging themes identified for future study and consideration.
