How should international study evolve post-pandemic in order to extend the benefits of higher education to every corner of the globe?
Summary

The pandemic has forced a major rethink of international higher education. Travel restrictions have put a huge dent in international student enrolments and after a year of doing everything remotely is International travel for students or university staff even necessary?

Two scholars give us their opinions on what's next for the internationalisation of higher education, international student mobility and English as a mode of instruction. Joining hosts Sara Custer and Miranda Prynne are Omolabake Fakunle, a chancellor’s fellow at the University of Edinburgh and Benjamin Tak Yuen Chan, dean of the Li Ka Shing School of Professional and Continuing Education at the Open University of Hong Kong.
