Publication info

In recent years, many Finnish universities of applied sciences (UAS) have engaged in systematic development of their educational expertise and services by adapting them for global education markets. The export of education has been acknowledged as its own sphere of operations, which is not only reliant on top-quality education but also requires new skills and competences, as well as novel mindsets, from the actors in higher education institutions. This publication, initiated by the international committee of the Rector’s Conference of Finnish Universities of Applied Sciences (Arene), gathers UASs’ experiences of education export so far, while also providing ideas regarding future aims and expectations for operations in the field. The articles have been drawn up by 52 education experts representing 13 Finnish UASs, as well as their important interest groups and cooperation partners.
