Eurostudent.eu, a project to collate comparable data on the social dimension of European higher education, has a tremendous wealth of relevant data for policymakers interested in the international dimension of higher education.
In the Eurostudent VI (2016-18) Synopsis of Indicators, we can see that already 20% of students benefit from some international experience as part of their HE studies across Europe. Looking at countries with Aurora member universities, with see Norway leading with a staggering 35%. France (29%) and the Netherlands (26%) follow and also Sweden (23%), and Iceland (22%) are above average – Germany equals it. The UK and Belgium are not covered. Seeing the Scandinavian countries high up is not surprising – France so close to the top three might surprise some of us.
