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).
