INTERNATIONAL EDUCATOR J A N + F E B . 13

grees—the trends highlighted by OECD are clear: Institutions of higher education in Asian countries are now more willing to raise their standards regarding teaching quality, student diversity, support services for international students, sensitivity toward external perceptions of their institutions, and flexibility in counting time abroad toward degree requirements.10 These moves allow higher education institutions in several countries to learn from and compete with each other—enhancing the academic reputation of many of these institutions, and making them more attractive to students from the region. Cost consideration also plays a role in intra-regional cooperation.11 Most Asian students are from developing countries; thus, it’s more economical to study across borders in a regional country that costs much less in tuition and fees than to cross the ocean for the same degree. Even with the sole purpose of receiving an education in an English-speaking environment, many Asian students go to Singapore and Malaysia, because the cost in these two destinations is lower than in major English-speaking destinations.12 Asia’s diverse demographic picture contributes to the increase of cross-border mobility and collaboration in many unique ways. Higher education industries of India, Pakistan, the Philippines, Indonesia, Vietnam, and Malaysia are set to reap a “demographic dividend” for at least two more decades, with their huge population of young people. The demand simply cannot be met by their in-country educational enterprises; higher education industries will see a surge in going global for both export demand, and import infrastructure. Meanwhile, the era of glory in the higher education boom may be over in several countries which have a decreasing number of students. Asia’s most prosperous economies—Japan, South Korea, Singapore, and Taiwan—have some of the lowest birth rates in the world. While still major senders of students across the borders, several Asian countries have an urgent need to attract students to sustain their own enterprises and to import labor for economic sustainability. That mobility will largely be from within the region.

The Impact of Intra-Asian Regional Globalism on the United States and the World
Anything happening in Asia in international education should have noticeable impact on the global scene. Of the 152.5 million college students in the world in 2007, about one-third are in six Asian countries alone. Asian students will continue to flow to the United States and Western Europe. But with a growing trend of regionalism in Asia, that speed will be slower, and the percentage smaller. With further growing economic power providing better career opportunities, and with an improved quality of regional university education, more Asian students will settle studying in neighboring Asian countries in the years to come. If the United States and Western Europe cannot effectively stop the financial crisis’ negative impact on higher education, this trend could accelerate.
