Title Internationalization of higher education in Slovenia: Cross-border perspective
Author Valentina Jošt Lešer
Abstract
Internationalization has become a major topic of debate in the European Higher Education Area in last two decades, especially because of the meaning of internationalization and its set of activities has changed. Today’s activities go beyond mobility of students, teachers, knowledge and values and consist on a new form of programs, providers and projects that cross borders. The nature of higher education in Europe is changing; hence we have entered the period of cross-border education, which has become a key aspect of internationalization. This paper provides a critical reflection on cross-border higher education in Slovenia as part of European Higher Education Area. More specifically it will try to answer the following research question: What are the risks, benefits and alternatives in terms of higher education system in Slovenia? For the purpose of the paper we have used the descriptive method, especially in conceptualizing key points. In addition to that, analysis of the primary and secondary sources content was done, where the data was drawn from the domestic and foreign literature, internet resources, and legal documents.
