  7. What is Cross Border Education? “Cross-border higher education includes higher education that takes place when students follow a course or program of study that has been produced, and is continued to be maintained, in a country different from the one in which they are residing. Cross-border higher education may include higher education by private and/or for-profit providers (Daniel, 2006).” Cross-border higher education may or can emerge from any entities such as corporations, universities, professional organizations or multinational organization. The General Agreement on Trade in Services (GATS) has reinforced national sovereignty over cross-border higher education When an institution and its programs, teachers, course materials and students cross over the boundaries of other nations, it is considered as cross-border education.

Challenges CBHE is complex and global in nature Students face challenge in finding institution of integrity & Quality (Rogue & Degree Mills) International price (tuition) – too expensive in Developing nations Limited Internet infrastructure in developing countries GATS implementation on HE as tradable may hamper CBHE “In the emerging global economy where the neo-liberal values of privatization and market competition are dominant, it is crucial for those of us committed to public education to reaffirm certain fundamental values and principles. One of these principles is that education, including higher, technical, and professional education, is a right and not a commodity (EI, 2001, p. 5).” EI. (2001). Globalization, GATS and higher education. Emerson David

  13. “The real difficulty is that people have no idea of what education truly is. We assess the value of education in the same manner as we assess the value of land or of shares in the stock-exchange market. We want to provide only such education as would enable the student to earn more. We hardly give any thought to the improvement of the character of the educated. The girls, we say, do not have to earn; so why should they be educated? As long as such ideas persist there is no hope of our ever knowing the true value of education.” -- Mahatma Gandhi Thank You!
