Title International Branch Campuses: Case study of University of Reading in Malaysia - Pt1: The view from the home country
Author Carolyn Walker - OBHE Associate, Consultant in International HE; Former Academic Director, INTO


In this two part series, we will take a look at international branch campuses (IBCs) from two perspectives: the home and the host countries. Focussing on the UK’s University of Reading and the new Reading Malaysia branch campus, we will first examine the perceptions and impact of this type of internationalisation strategy in relation to the home institution. The second article will evaluate the development from the perspective of the host country and consider what light is thrown on the health of Malaysia’s private higher education sector, of which IBCs form a part.
