Research limitations/implications – The paper focuses on Australia and the Asian region, although material related to the UK and the USA is included in some sections. Whether a country is the provider or the receiver of transnational education, the issues raised will be relevant. Practical implications – This paper provides a very useful source of information for those currently involved in or planning to become involved in a transnational higher education activity.
