Abstract: The internationalization process of higher education in policies and actions at the national, sector and institutional levels is responding to the trends of globalization and regionalization. Therefore, when examining the progress of East Asian regionalization with regard to higher education, it is important to review internationalization processes from the viewpoint of both governments and institutions (e.g., universities). Korean policy discussion on cross-border higher education is moving towards regionalization of higher education in East Asia, and also de facto regional integration of higher education is observed. This study aims to find the role of Korea in the context of building regional framework in East Asia by closely examining the activeness of cross-border activities, significance of cross-border activities’ expected outcomes, and preferences of their region of partners in the analytically selected nine “leading” universities in Korea. The analysis of this study is based on the result of a comprehensive survey and in-depth interviews in the nine Korea universities. The finding shows that conventional activities such as acceptance of foreign students and outgoing mobility opportunities for students have high level of activeness compared to other cross-border activities. The expected outcomes and technical reasons for operating cross-border activities are different depending on the types of activities, as well as the region of partners.
