Note: Only 40 percent of the highest international student movements (more than 41 students, respective the 3rd quintile of rank-ordered distribution in the European network in year 2010) are depicted. The thickness of arrows is proportional to the number of students who went from the country where the arrow starts to the country where the arrow ends. The size of European country nodes is proportional to the number of incoming and outgoing students in that country. The size of arrows and nodes is directly comparable across the years. The community detection algorithm used is based on modularities (with a 1.5 resolution factor). Different colors represent different network components extracted by this analysis. Click on the map to see the legend of components for every single year.
