Abstract/Summary In 2009, the Australian and Indian governments established a joint working group on various education-related matters, including quality in higher education. The group endorsed a number of joint initiatives to enhance mutual understanding of quality-related issues in both countries. One of these initiatives is a study on quality assurance issues, which has resulted in this joint publication by the Australian Universities Quality Agency (AUQA), and the National University of Educational Planning and Administration (NUEPA) of India. The nineteen chapters in this book were written by eminent academics, policy makers and quality assurance professionals from both countries, and edited by Dr Antony Stella from AUQA and Professor Sudhanshu Bhushan from NUEPA. The book covers areas specific to the trends, emerging challenges and opportunities related to the quality assurance of higher education as it crosses national borders. Study of this area will be of benefit to both Australia and India, since both countries have become exporters as well as importers to varying degrees. The quality assurance arrangements in the two countries are undergoing changes, with specific attention to monitoring transnational education.
