Short description of the intended volume:

International student mobility has come to occupy an increasingly prominent position in Higher Education (Baker, 2016) with the initial purpose to feed academic interests and needs. However, over time, the aims of international student mobility evolved and are no longer the same. In the year 1996, the European Commission allocated three explicit objectives to the experience of spending a few months studying in another European country: to benefit students educationally, linguistically, and culturally; to promote cooperation between institutions; to contribute to the development of a pool of well-qualified, open-minded and internationally experienced future professionals. By 2008, mobility programs aimed to promote lifelong learning, encourage access to education for everybody, and help people acquire recognized qualifications and skills (European Commission, 2008). In 2014 the European Commission distinguished new aims that included building international networks, active participation in society, and a sense of citizenship and European identity development. And recently, the situation has drastically changed as a result of a Covid-19 breakout. Thus, the collection aims to understand the present-day goals, achievements, and failure of international student mobility from various perspectives.

The topics include but are not limited to:

- cross-linguistic competences
- mobility and cross-culturalism
- cooperation among Higher Education institutions
- international experiences and student employability
- international student networks
- identity and citizenship
- equity and discrimination
- international faculty experiences
- challenges students face
- student mobility and Covid-19

The aspects above should be considered with respect to international student mobility:
