Towards a Commonwealth of Scholars

A New Vision for the Nineties

image of Towards a Commonwealth of Scholars
Within the universities of the Commonwealth there has always been a sense of a common educational and research tradition.

A workshop was held in Singapore in April 1992 to outline the strategies and mechanisms for developing, maintaining and expanding student flows into the universities and polytechnics of the Commonwealth South and for the extension of South-South exchange. Material from the Singapore papers is here brought together in a readable form, providing:

• An historical background to the new initiatives

• A thorough analysis of the major policy issues

• A set of case studies



Academic Exchange Schemes in Malaysia

Earlier chapters have drawn attention to the principles underlying the globalisation of higher education, some of the policies and issues relevant to student exchange and some of the factors favouring or inhibiting it. The main perspectives have been those of universities of the South, while Section Four surveyed North-South student flows from the angle of countries and institutions in the North. This section returns to higher education institutions in the South and moves from analysis of student flows and reasons behind them to specific case studies.
