Chapter Summary

This chapter relates the internationalisation policies adopted by Korean universities to the broader discussion of globalisation and higher education, especially as globalisation gives rise not only to new economic dynamics but also to new social relations. Specifically, it presents a discussion of the market forces flowing from globalisation that create global competition in higher education, and the contemporary landscape of internationalisation and student mobility in Asia as a product of this phenomenon of global competition. The chapter also discusses the socio-economic realities of South Korea that lead to Korean policies of internationalisation, and the contentious issues arising out of those policies as they relate to the broader issues of Korean higher education. The case of South Korea is indicative of what is happening throughout Asia, where competition for student markets has become more pronounced as Asian universities devise incentives and mechanisms for enhancing the inflow of foreign students.

Keywords: Asian universities; globalisation; internationalisation; Korean higher education; Korean universities; student mobility
