- Satya points us to Philip Altbach's article arguing that international higher education is facing a bubble much like the sub-prime crisis.
- Tamar Lewin of NYTimes on the ethics of universities hiring middlemen to attract foreign students.
- A serious rant from Malaysia (written by "Disgruntled Former Staff" ;-) on how an Australian university is taking that country for a ride. All in the name of helping Malaysia develop its "intellectual capital," of course.
- The UK Higher Education International Unit has some interesting factoids about globalized higher ed:
- In 2004, 2.7 million students were enrolled in HEIs outside their countries of citizenship. In 2005-06, six countries hosted 67% of these students (23% in the US, 12% in the UK, 11% in Germany, 10% in France, 7% in Australia, and 5% in Japan). (UNESCO, 2006)
