In a rapidly changing transnational eduscape, it is timely to consider how best to conceptualise international education. Here we argue for a conceptual relocation from international student to international study as a means to bridge the diverse literatures on international education. International study also enables recognition of the multiple contributions (and resistances) of international students as agents of knowledge formation; it facilitates consideration of the mobility of students in terms of circulations of knowledge; and is a means to acknowledge the complex spatialities of international education in which students and educators are emotionally and politically networked together through knowledge contributions.
