Title: Drivers of international education and skilled migration: Reshaping perspectives

International students play a leading role in the globalised and mobilised knowledge economy today. There is a growing body of research that views being mobile for educational purposes and skilled migration as two closely related processes in the continuum of the mobile lives of the modern-day youth. Based on the findings of my PhD research, this talk presents insights into the relationship between international student mobility and skilled migration.


Umesha Weerakkody is a doctoral student at the Melbourne Centre for the Study of Higher Education at the University of Melbourne. Umesha completed her M.Ed degree in Education Leadership and Policy at SUNY Buffalo as a Fulbright Scholar and her research interests include international student mobility, critical globalisation studies, and higher education in developing countries.

It’s a brown bag lunch event. Please RSVP  catherine.gomes at rmit.edu.au<mailto:supriya.singh at rmit.edu.au> by Friday 9 August.

Best wishes,
