Abstract
We examine whether the (research) quality of a country’s higher education
system drives macro-flows of foreign tertiary students in Europe. We use
various measures on the quality of a country’s higher education system in an
extended gravity model. We find that quality has a positive and significant
effect on the size and direction of flows of students exchanged between 18
European countries.
