Governments and institutions are increasingly seeking to promote higher levels of outward student mobility. In theory, benefits accrue to students, their home countries and host countries. In reality, benefits are often unevenly distributed – not only between students, home and host countries, but also between individual students within countries.
So, is it possible to develop frameworks to deliver win-win scenarios for all three?

This question is explored in a world café session, using examples of short-term mobility partnerships between universities in the UK, Australia, Singapore and Hong Kong with partners in India, Indonesia, South Africa and Myanmar.
