Centre for Research in International Education (CRIE)


As schooling and Higher Education become increasingly internationalised, and as more students and staff cross international borders, important questions about the changing nature of education and new forms of global inequality have emerged.

The Centre for Research in International Education at the University of Nottingham Malaysia Campus is committed to conducting world-class research into the effects of internationalisation at all levels of education.
