Internationalizing higher education: How new regulations impact international students


by Fatma Katr

Globalization continues to shape today’s higher education institutions worldwide through internationalization, fostering global connections, and strengthening academic leadership. Many of these institutions operate under the notion that borders should not stop knowledge.

However, the true positive effect of internationalization is halted by today’s shift in immigration policies, and by governments that don’t place enough value on the importance of their higher education institutions. These scenarios affect leaders, faculty, staff, and students worldwide.

  • Reasons why internationalization could fail
  • How can internationalization best be implied in institutions?
