Scotland's Independence Would Make Scottish Universities Charging British Students Fees Illegal

uk-universities-educationBy Lucy Sherriff. Charging British students tuition fees for attending Scottish universities would be illegal if the country were to gain its independence, legal experts have warned. The news is bound to be a blow to the Scottish National Party as Scotland would be left to foot a £150m bill in extra university fees.
The Scottish government says students from England, Wales and Northern Ireland would be made to continue paying fees if the country was granted its independence, while those from Scotland and other EU countries attend the university for free. However, experts have said the practice would break EU laws as it would discriminate against the British. More...

As Myanmar reopens, so does its universities

http://www.aljazeera.com/Media/ver2/Images/menuitem_ajam.gifBy . Closed following student unrest in 1988, Yangon University is accepting undergraduates again in a sign of change. Once a hotbed of political subversion, the old foundations of the Rangoon Student Union now sustain a grove of trees that sway sleepily in regimental rows. A student sits on a wall nearby, leafing through a text book.
The old building was blown up in 1962 by the first of Burma's secretive military juntas that steered the country through decades of misrule and eviscerated its once-prestigious higher education system.
Half a century and a name-change later, the leafy avenues of Yangon University are crawling with the first crop of undergraduates to study a curriculum free from the interfering hand of the military. More...

The role that Finnish universities have in a globalising economy

Globalisation is crucial to Finland, especially in its economic development. As a small country in the north of Europe, Finland’s economy is highly dependent on international trade and the international markets (statement by the Prime Minister’s Office). The Internationalisation of Higher Education Strategy, issued by the Ministry of Education of Finland in 2009, stresses the role of universities in a globalising local society. To achieve this end, especially in the economic dimension, is by no means an easy task. It requires actors involved in international education not only to be committed but also to be innovative. In so doing they need to better understand the nature of globalisation and go beyond thinking within the higher education sector per se. However, the current practices in internationalisation of higher education in Finland seem to have much room for improvement. More...

Students should be at the centre of internationalisation

http://enews.ksu.edu.sa/wp-content/uploads/2011/10/UWN.jpgBy Robert Coelen. As educators, we need to be aware of the forces that shape the future of education and the world for which we prepare graduates.
