The Californian Model of Higher Education in the World

12/15/2014; 84 minutes

The high participation higher education system first developed in California has spread to national systems across the world. In 2012 more than half of high school graduates were enrolled in higher education in over fifty countries. Simon Marginson, Professor of International Higher Education at the Institute of Education in London, explains that at the same time there has been a great growth in the level of cross-border engagement and American universities are collaborating all over the world. Although the United States continues to sustain the leading higher education and research system, the university world is rapidly become more plural, with growing educational participation in Latin America, a renaissance in Western Europe, and above all the rise of East Asia as the third great zone of universities and science.
