Abstract [en]

International students have become an increasingly importantresearch object–not only on the basis of the overall expansionand importance of international students in higher education andin national economic policies, but also since they constitute astrategicresearch object for understanding the global landscapeof higher education. By using correspondence analysis on a dataset on countries of destination and regions of origin, the globalspace of international students is depicted. The analysis reveals astructure with three main poles, a Pacific pole, a Central Europeanone and a French/Iberian one. The three poles correspond tothree different logics of recruitment: a market logic, a proximitylogic and a colonial logic. The three poles and logics are alsorelated to linguistic structures. The Pacific/Market pole isdominated by English, while the Central European pole hasGerman and Slavic languages as a common denominator, and theFrench and Iberian pole has French, Spanish and Portuguese incommon with their former colonies. It is argued that the Pacific/Market pole is the dominating pole in the space due to the highconcentration of resources of different sorts, including economic,political, educational, scientific and not least, linguistic assets.
