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



World Class Institutions and Student Mobility

The Indian Institutes of Technology

A very thorough study of academic exchange and student mobility in general higher education in India is given in Chapter 6. An equally thorough parallel study was made of student mobility in the technological institutions in India and this chapter presents some extracts from it. The interest of the Indian Institutes of Technology is in their high prestige, so that their position as exemplars would be of special importance, both in India and in other Commonwealth countries.
