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

Student Flows, Exchange and Capacity Building in India

Within the Commonwealth, India has a special place as a country with a large and complex system of higher education, which is both a major host to foreign students and a sender of its researchers abroad. For this reason, the Education Division of the Commonwealth Secretariat commissioned both a report on general higher education and a specific case-study on technical education (see the Chapter in Part Five by Jayalakshmi Indiresan).
