    Abstract

    The aim of this round table discussion is to consider academic and personal
    challenges associated with the increasing recruitment of international students to
    university programmes as highlighted by Trice (2003), which includes professional
    doctorate courses. Current economic factors and changes to the UK higher
    education system have led to increasing initiatives to recruit overseas students.
    Globalisation has been occurring on large social and economic scales for many
    decades with populations finding easier communications, collaborations and
    information sharing opportunities due to developing technologies and inter-country
    mobility systems. For example, in Europe the Bologna process was introduced to
    facilitate the internal mobility of students, teachers and administrative staff, due to
    the nature of this increase in international mobility of students (Cardoso et al, 2007).
