For this case study, please analyze the process of westernization of higher education that is taking place in the international arena. Particularly focusing on UK universities and their role in such process. This should be looked at through two main factors. The first, focusing on the number of international students coming to the UK and their participation in the UK higher education system. This should include figures and rates of international students and the countries they came from for the last few years. Analyse how such flow of students to the UK is helping in the process of Westernization of higher education. Secondly you should focus on the fact that more UK universities are opening branches and different departments internationally. Governments hosting UK universities in countries like the UAE, Kuwait, India, and China aim to increase intellectual benefit for their citizens. This shows that there has been an increasing international trend towards western higher education especially from developing countries that want to benefit from Western developed countries’ education systems to help them develop in different fields.
