The rise of international students has generated significant attention around the world including in the EHEA which has set out to increase international student mobility. In this paper we analyze patterns in the mobility of international students using the temporal framework developed by Choudaha . We also look at variation within the EHEA and, more importantly, variation in the sending countries. The aim of this paper is therefore to increase our understanding of patterns in International student Mobility by focusing on the region of origin of students. By analyzing data made available by the UNESCO institute of statistics we uncovered that there are indeed substantial differences when looking at both host and countries. The implications of these findings are discussed with regards to effectively attracting and retaining international students.
