The pandemic, war in Europe, and the increased importance of sustainable development, are all factors that affect international student mobility. In Norway, tuition fees will soon be introduced for non-European international students. What implications do these issues and events have for international student mobility? How will it affect our educational institutions, or society in general? What is ultimately the value of staying abroad as a student?
These are some of the questions that will be addressed at the International Student Mobility conference, organized by OsloMet and The Nordic Institute for Studies of Innovation, Research and Education (NIFU).
The conference is free of charge.
The program for this conference includes the following presentations:
- Hans de Wit: Critical reflections on international student mobility in a time of global challenges
- Mikael Börjesson og André Bryntesson: What happened when Sweden introduced student fees?
- Results from the research project International student mobility, drivers, patterns, and impacts (MOBILITY). This project seeks to investigate student mobility within teachers’ education, career benefits from international education, and why international students come to Norway.
Further information regarding the conference program will be announced soon.
This conference is organized by the Centre for the Study of Professions at OsloMet, in cooperation with the Nordic Institute for Studies of Innovation, Research and Education (NIFU).
