The creation of the General Agreement on Trade in Services(GATS) reflects the formalization of market processes and procedures for international trade in services. GATS encompasses all internationally traded services, including education. Within the education sector, GATS covers five categories of education services: primary, secondary, higher, adult, and ‘others’. Trade in education under the GATS framework takes place in four modes:

  1. cross-border supply of the service (where consumers [students] remain withinthe country);
  2. consumption abroad (where consumers cross the border);
  3. commercial presence of the provider in another country(institutional mobility);
  4. presence of persons in another country(staff mobility).
