Collaboration in international education

Institutions in Australia 'exporting' education depend on collaborative articulation agreements, alliances and a myriad of partnerships with recruiters and private companies to source their 'export' market (Healy, 2008). The Business of Education is Australia's 3rd biggest export and one of the fastest growing service industries in the world (OECD, 2010) and ripe with research potential.

The aim of this project is to investigate collaborative models for the international expansion of education, and explore the knowledge-related advantages accrued through expatriate visits between higher education institutions.
