The session will present research on international student mobility, which has mostly been studied in terms of South to North and East to West patterns. This seminar will discuss mobility in the East and Southeast Asian region, and discuss the evolving role of transnational higher education (TNHE) as part of wider national development policies. By exploring international student mobility in ASEAN and Sino-foreign HE partnerships, the session will outline the evolution of policies to promote, govern, and achieve more “equal” transnational partnerships and raise the importance of understanding “South-to-South” HE mobility. The session is meant to engage and raise further discussions about alternative definitions and conceptions of HE internationalisation.
