Abstract:

International student mobility (ISM) has become a significant social and educational phenomenon alongside the advent of neoliberal globalization commencing in the 1980s. In terms of the significant and frequent ISM, I consider the plurality of countries’ rationales and motivations towards this phenomenon in a global context. By taking an interpretivist approach, through the analysis of policy and practice on higher education and ISM, the factors in the arenas of policy influence, which stimulated a large number of students to migrate from one country or one region to the other in pursuit of higher education, are identified.
The study begins with a review of major OECD countries’ policies towards international student migration. Then within the Canadian-Chinese context, I explore Chinese students’ migration to Canada. In particular, the Chinese government and Canadian government’s policy and position on this phenomenon are analyzed.
Through the analytical review of the policy and position of the selected OECD countries and China, key findings are summarized. Different from the main rationale of supporting international academic exchange and cultural communication in the Middle Ages, new rationales of government’s promoting internationalization of higher education (IHE) and ISM came into being after World War II in the major OECD countries. As for those radical changes in policies on IHE and ISM, the influence of neoliberalism on policy making is evident. Neoliberal globalization also has influenced Chinese society and China’s official position on ISM from China to Canada and other major OECD countries. However, the phenomenon of Chinese students’ pursuing study abroad is also related to national solidarity and nationalism.
