PINTO, Marialva Moog  and  LARRECHEA, Enrique Martínez. Internationalization of higher education: an analysis of mobility trends of students between north and south global countries. Avaliação (Campinas) [online]. 2018, vol.23, n.3, pp.718-735. ISSN 1982-5765.

The process of internationalization of Higher Education (ES) is increasingly central to the development dynamics of this sector and is expressed in several responses through which systems and institutions try to meet the challenges of globalization and regionalization. Although internationalization is not limited to the phenomenon of student mobility, this has been one of the most visible and impactful forms. This article aims to describe and interpret trends in the international mobility of ES students and to analyze these mobility trends between global regions and their relationship with Brazil. To achieve this goal, we have reviewed the literature, policy and institutional documents, as well as international statistical databases. In discussing, the article justifies that the mechanisms of mobility created are inconsistent, often resulting in the transfer of significant financial resources from developing to developed countries.
