Low Costs Lure U.S. College Students Abroad
Reuters
Looking for a low-cost college option? Consider learning German. Patrick Finger, a high school senior from Southern California, did just that. He applied to a dozen or so colleges this year, including several state schools. In the end, he chose a less conventional path, opting to perfect his German language skills over the next year and then enroll at the University of Cologne. Tuition at German universities proved irresistible — it's free.

Is There An Identity Crisis In International Education?
University World News
Globally, international education today faces many challenges. At the top of these challenges, however, is one key problem. We have a crisis of identity. The voting public, politicians and most civil servants do not understand who we are, what we do or where we fit in. A comparison of where Australia and the United Kingdom currently sit in the evolution of international education from being a sector to being both a sector and an industry throws up some interesting issues. There is clearly a desire on the part of many U.K. institutions to emulate Australia's success in attracting significant tuition fee revenue, gaining international diversity within the student cohort and enhancing student mobility and research collaboration.

Amherst College, known for its selectivity, is accustomed to sending rejection notices. But when the liberal-arts beacon turned down an invitation to join the exclusive partnership of colleges offering massive open online courses through edX, it nonetheless drew surprise from many corners of academe. Colleges have clamored to be part of the high-profile consortiums run by edX, a Cambridge-based nonprofit, and Coursera, a Bay Area startup — often with little input from faculty members. The pace of adoption has shocked even the founders of the MOOC platforms, who are veterans of a higher-education sector notorious for its tortoiselike reflexes.

Fox News Latino

According to a poll conducted by the Pew Hispanic Center, 69 percent of 2012 high school graduates who identify as Latino are enrolled full time at an institution of higher learning, compared with 67 percent of white high school graduates. It may be a reflection of the current economic times — stay in school because you may not find a job out there.
