Internationalisation of higher education: The Nordic Experience

Carlsson, J., Jensen, P. H., Nyborg, P., Skulason, P. and Uronen, P. The Internationalisation of Higher Education: The Nordic Experience. OBHE, London, 2009. Pages: 42.

The report gives a detailed outline of the development of student mobility between the Nordic countries (in the context of the already well established Nordic cooperation), between these countries and the rest of Europe (under the Bologna Process) and between the Nordic countries and other regions in the world. The authors touch on the challenges of staff mobility, with regards to the two components of traditional academic mobility and job migration, and underline the importance of studying student exchange separately from full degree studies in another country, the latter being closely connected to recruitment of skilled personnel.
