The Disjuncture Between Private Higher Education and Internationalisation

  • Wondwosen Tamrat

Abstract

This article examines how the inherent characteristics of private higher
education institutions can impinge on the level and magnitude of their
internationalisation efforts. It argues that although their current profiles
may disadvantage them in the internationalisation process, which often
favours strong institutions from the outset, private higher education institutions
can become active players in the international arena by identifying
their niche, augmenting their capacity and increasing their attractiveness.
Government higher education policy should also be geared towards
enhancing public and private higher education institutions’ participation
in the internationalisation process.
