Customarily, at the start of a new academic year, planes packed with migrating higher education students are streaking across the planet’s skies. In 2018, a global total of 5.6 million students were heading abroad for courses of 12 months or more. The United States led the way when it came to international student mobility, with a figure of just under a million. This year is different.
In the first of Lingnan University’s Global Higher Education Webinar Series looking at the ramifications of the COVID-19 pandemic, the internationally-renowned Professor of Higher Education at the University of Oxford, Simon Marginson, presented an overview of the resilience of education systems across the globe, and their prospects once we emerge from the current crisis.
