By Rahul Choudaha – in University World News.

Universities should not regard their international students as cash cows, but take a greater interest in new research that looks at what factors are necessary for them to succeed.


These stories are quite distant in terms of time and geography, but they share the same sentiment and implication for higher education institutions: international students are not just about revenue:
