While the recruitment of international students is nothing new, universities world-wide are increasingly recognising the importance of valuing populations of students who take up Higher Education opportunities outside their home nations. Whereas in the past this has frequently been seen as problematic, as Higher Education institutions (HEIs) get used to competing in a global HE market, a different approach has to be adopted that values the contribution international students make to the learning community as much as being concerned with dealing with the complexities that arise from having a diverse student population. In this volume we bring together the experiences of authors who work with international students in a wide variety of contexts and we draw conclusions about what constitutes best practice.
