Rincón, Virginia; Barrutia, Jon – European Journal of Education, 2017
In the current context of globalisation it seems inevitable that the international openness of universities would also lead to efforts to attract foreign students.

Hazelkorn, Ellen – European Journal of Education, 2014
Ten years after the first global rankings appeared, it is clear that they have had an extraordinary impact on higher education. While there are fundamental questions about whether rankings measure either quality or what's meaningful, they have succeeded in exposing higher education to international comparison.
