Abstract

This article reports the findings of a research study that explored the emerging issues and challenges involved in attracting Asian students to pursue higher education in Hong Kong. The study found that internationalisation strategies at both the system and institutional levels attempted to address problems associated with exporting higher education and make studying in Hong Kong’s higher education system more attractive. These strategies were mainly driven by brain gain and income generation. Based on the research findings, higher education services should be promoted overseas in a way that transcends profit motivations, enhances students’ learning experiences and prepares students to be future leaders in a humanised environment.
