Front cover 4th Global Survey This latest edition of the IAU Global Survey drew completed questionnaires from 1,336 higher education institutions in 131 countries – thereby making this report the largest and most geographically comprehensive collection and analysis of primary data on internationalization of higher education ever undertaken.

By assessing internationalization trends over time and comparing development across regions, the 4th Global Survey provides unique insights on the internationalization process, its benefits, drivers and also underlying values.

The 4th Global Survey benefited from the Support of the European Commission, NAFSA: Association of International Educators, European Association For International Education (EAIE) and the British Council.
