This book provides a thorough international investigation of tertiary education policy across its many facets – governance, funding, quality assurance, equity, research and innovation, academic career, links to the labour market and internationalisation. It presents an analysis of the trends and developments in tertiary education; a synthesis of research-based evidence on the impact of tertiary-education policies; innovative and successful policies and practices that countries have implemented; and tertiary-education policy options. The report draws on the results of a major OECD review of tertiary education policy – the OECD Thematic Review of Tertiary Education -- conducted over the 2004-08 period in collaboration with 24 countries around the world.

Internationalisation: Shaping Strategies in the National Context

Internationalisation features among the key transformations of tertiary education provision in developed industrial countries since the late 1980s – alongside the massification of participation. Despite signs of international student and academic mobility in medieval European universities, which was facilitated by the common use of Latin (Scott, 2000), international activities have in more recent times long been bound to research. Teaching and learning remained essentially national, both in terms of student populations as well as in terms of provision. The national oversight of tertiary education found its expression in a long tradition of State-funded tertiary education institutions (TEIs) in many OECD countries.
