Author Richard Garrett - The Observatory on Borderless Higher Education


Fraud in higher education is a complex matter, which by definition eludes comprehensive data and straightforward recommendations. As mass higher education develops across the world, and provision is increasingly commercial, international and IT-enabled, fraud may only be expected to increase in scale, sophistication and significance. This is the inevitable counterpart of the legitimate innovation characteristic of borderless higher education. This paper analyses various instances of fraudulent/sub-standard activity, and considers regulatory and other responses.
