The Global Gauge of HE policy is an interactive higher education policy monitor to be used alongside ‘The shape of global higher education’ research reports. 

This study identifies three areas where national governments can provide an enabling environment to their higher education institutions to internationalise and forge collaborations: 

  • Openness: government-level commitment to internationalisation; environment enabling international mobility of students, researchers, academic programmes and university research; 
  • Quality assurance and recognition: A regulatory environment to facilitate the international mobility of students, education providers and academic programmes. 
  • Access and sustainability: Promoting student/academic mobility and international research collaboration; consideration of possible unintended consequences of internationalisation. 

New for 2017, we have also grouped the indicators according to the main activities of HE institutions:

  • International student mobility
  • Transnational education
  • International research engagement 

Explore details of 37 qualitative indicators across 38 countries/territories to identify areas of international higher education attracting a high level of support from national government (level of support is scored from ‘very low’ to ‘very high’).

Data collected is accurate as of 31 March 2017.
