This chapter offers the first substantial survey of the abroad colleges as a whole and then assesses their historiographies before making a case for further research along comparative and transnational lines. Peregrinatio academica was a familiar feature of higher education in late medieval and Renaissance Europe. In the main centres of migration, students from abroad banded together to form corporate structures for their security and advancement. From the mid-sixteenth century, a complex network of abroad colleges for migrant Catholic students slowly emerged. By widening the historical lens from the Irish, English and Scots colleges, to take in Dutch, German, Scandinavian and eastern colleges, historians will be able to re-consider the development of administrative structures. The greater accessibility to and use of continental archives has permitted Irish and Scottish historians to re-write the history of modern migration and, in so doing, to re-interpret the place of student mobility and college foundations.
