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



Against the Grain?

Student Mobility from Britain to Commonwealth Developing Countries

This chapter reports on a study to make a preliminary assessment of the current scale and pattern of student mobility from Britain to the developing Commonwealth. The purposes were also: to identify preconditions and obstacles to expansion of North-South outward mobility; to stimulate thinking; and to generate proposals for action. Within the wider project of investigating patterns and prospects for diversifying student mobility in the Commonwealth, one principle recognised is that North-South academic linkages may be instrumental in strengthening higher education capacity and excellence within the developing Commonwealth.
