The article devotes to semantic analysis of terms for "transnational higher education" de-termining due to the peculiarities of their usage in scientific research works in the social fields (sociology, philosophy, political science, economics, cultural studies), documents of international organizations, governmental and non-governmental educational institutions of different countries involved in the process of international integration in education, in order to identify the nature of the phenomenon under investigation. Usually the term "transnational" is used in research on higher education to emphasize the importance of "between" or "on" territorial boundaries, so the emphasis is on what is happening in the "transnational space" rather than at the level of formal cooperation between nations. It is founded that the term "transnational higher education" is usu¬ally used to refer to real or virtual movement of students, faculty, and academic programs from one country to another. The study of semantic meaning of key term "transnational higher educa¬tion" shows that it is often used with respect to educational and scientific initiatives andpartne r- ships at the institutional level, rather than at the level of individual mobility of teachers and stu¬dents. Development of transnational higher education as an active and effective international co¬operation for the purpose of cross-fertilization and exchange of experience in education becomes an important part of education policy in developed countries, including Great Britain, Australia, Canada and USA. After all its indisputable advantages include increased availability of higher education universalization of knowledge, the development of international standards for quality and innovation, increase higher education participation by students and teachers in the interna¬tional exchange of knowledge, expansion and strengthening of international cooperation in edu¬cation and research sector, diversification and growth of financial flows by attracting foreign students to pay learning, expanding international network of higher education institutions for the effective use of their resources.
