Doubts about Australia’s capacity to recover competitive advantage in the international market underpin a lack of confidence in the future among sector leaders.
Unease about whether most universities and governments have grasped what is needed to survive and prosper in global higher education – and to develop a truly “internationalised” university system – comes through strongly in new qualitative research for the Higher Education Supplement.

A comprehensive internationalisation strategy will be vital for any university to be successful in an increasingly global marketplace. I think there is concern, amongst at least some Australian institutions, that they may not have expertise, the resources, the research clout and the institution-wide commitment necessary to deliver.
