Welcome!  C-BERT.org is the source of information regarding college and universities with a multi-national presence. The site is maintained by the Cross-Border Education Research Team (C-BERT), hosted at the State University of New York at Albany and Pennsylvania State University. C-BERT maintains a comprehensive list of international campuses and also tracks other aspects of cross-border higher education.

C-BERT is dedicated to providing our visitors with accurate and up-to-date information. If you have updates or corrections to our data, please contact us email us or use the Contact-us form.

Over the past two decades, there has been a significant increase in higher education institutions exporting their educational programs across geopolitical borders. The Cross-Border Education Research Team (C-BERT) studies this phenomenon from organizational, sociological, economic, and political perspectives. As distinct from strictly virtual or online education, C-BERT concentrates on instances of physical cross-border teaching and research activities. These broad interests inform more specific inquiries into regulation, accountability, quality assurance, institutional legitimacy, patterns of growth, and institutional failures, among other topics. C-BERT does not promote or represent any institutions, sectors, or national systems engaged in cross-border higher education. Rather, its mission is to advance understanding of these issues through the discovery, analysis, and dissemination of knowledge. In turn, this research aims to inform institutional development as well as public policy and discussion.
