Available free to members and non-members, our electronic newsletter provides access to some of The Observatory's in-house articles and briefing notes.
To receive Borderless Report, please send an email to email@example.com with the subject heading ‘Subscribe to Borderless Report’.
Our research agenda focuses on topics that have current and future relevance to transnational higher education, and our reports provide in-depth analysis of the latest developments, trends and challenges in borderless higher education. By synthesising the latest international developments, the research reports assess their wider implications for higher education leaders and policy makers.
The Observatory publishes original in-house research reports on themes that challenge the 'traditional' boundaries of higher education, and particularly those expected to impact the core business of universities and colleges.
The Observatory also commissions internationally renowned authors to prepare substantive reports on key issues in borderless higher education with specific national, regional and/or international perspectives. The issues are both timely and provocative, challenging institutional leaders in their thinking and understanding of topics critical to strategic planning. Authors draw on their experience and expertise to provide insight into a wide diversity of international experience.
Individual reports are also available to non-subscribers.Electronic versions of reports can be purchased through a publications search, where publication details are on view.
Certain limited articles are also available for purchase. Please note, however, that an institutional subscription provides more value for money.
