|Title||International branch campuses: data and developments|
|Author||William Lawton, Alex Katsomitros - The Observatory on Borderless Higher Education|
This is the fourth survey report on international branch campuses (IBCs) from the Observatory on Borderless Higher Education. It is based primarily on data collected from IBCs throughout the world between July and December 2011. As at the end of 2011 there were 200 degree-awarding IBCs in operation worldwide, and 37 more will open over the next two years. New trends include a shift in activity to the Far East, intra-regional ‘south-to-south’ IBCs, niche campuses, and the link between IBCs and the drive by governments to establish ‘education hubs’ for national economic goals.
