Along with the recent innovations in information and communication technology, the international mobility of programs and institutions on a large scale since 1990s is becoming a special phenomenon while students mobility is continuing to grow in international higher education. As a form of academic mobility and market driven educational activity, transitional education is following the same pattern as international student mobility the major English speaking countries, such as UK, USA and Australia, are the primary and key service providers. However, the rising of regional hubs along with the entry of those countries without colonial and linguistic background like Taiwan is changing the landscape of transnational higher education.
