IEAA endorses student mobility charter
04 Jan 2013
The International Education Association of Australia (IEAA) has joined the European Association for International Education (EAIE), and other like‐minded associations around the world, to put forward a new International Student Mobility Charter.
The charter recognises the complexity of student mobility and provides a framework for countries and higher education institutions to support the high volume of incoming and outgoing students around the world.
In 2010 more than 4 million students were studying outside their home countries. According to UNESCO, the number of international higher education students around the world may rise to 8 million by 2025.
IEAA calls on governments and education institutions, as well as international agencies and international education associations, to endorse, support and promote the Charter.
