    Abstract

    This chapter sets ground to realize the exceptional significance of students to international branch campuses, which is a popular mode of transnational higher education. Mission statements of different international branch campuses is analysed that converge on the fact that most of these institutions irrespective of the host country perceive student as their priority. The chapter then moves in to explaining student choice, in a situation where number of international branch campuses co-exists in a home country such as the case of United Arab Emirates that hosts 19% of the world’s current branch campuses (Observatory 2012). This information is then employed to expound how international branch campuses can progressively build student experience. Within this chapter, readers can find steps to build student experience in the first year of operation, followed by fine steps that can assist in progressively developing student experience. The chapter then addresses the significance of student in transnational higher education and how this can be developed, leveraged and converted to be a potent tool such as to ensure sustainable branch campuses (a form of transnational higher education).
