More than three million students globally are on the move each year, crossing borders for their tertiary education. Many travel from Asia and Africa to English speaking countries, led by the United States, including the UK, Australia and New Zealand where students pay tuition fees at commercial rates and prop up an education export sector that has become lucrative for the provider nations. But the 'no frills' commercial form of tertiary education, designed to minimise costs and maximise revenues, leaves many international students inadequately protected and less than satisfied. International Student Security draws on a close study of international students in Australia, and exposes opportunity, difficulty, danger and courage on a massive scale in the global student market. It works through many unresolved issues confronting students and their families, including personal safety, language proficiency, finances, sub-standard housing, loneliness and racism.

Recensioner i media

'International Student Security is an important contribution to the continuing debate about the future of international education in Australia. It deserves to be read by higher education policy makers, entrepreneurs, employers, academics, administrators, consultants and journalists who all benefit from the multibillion dollar global industry. The authors have helped to fill a big gap in the literature and raised critical arguments about the future regulation and direction of higher education.' Journal of Higher Education Policy and Management

'This book deserves to be widely read. As well its major contribution to understanding security issues as they affect international students, the book has broad interest as a study of international political economy refracted through the international higher education market, as well as the development and functioning of regulatory regimes, and the anthropology of the international student.' Australian Universities' Review

'This book will have an extremely broad and eclectic audience, both academic and lay.' Allan Luke, Professor of Education, Queensland University of Technology

'What is most impressive is [the] extensive data collection and analysis of 200 student interviews across 35 countries. The stories are both compelling and memorable ... The book is very timely and speaks to a major gap in the literature: a critical examination of international student experiences in the midst of a quickly rising global student market.' Jenny Lee, Director, Centre for the Study of Higher Education, University of Arizona

'This book covers the whole broad dimension of international student security ... It is likely to appear as a key text in academic programmes throughout the world and its theoretical innovation and empirical findings will be extremely useful.' Rajani Naidoo, Director of Studies, Doctor of Business Administration in Higher Education Management, University of Bath
