In the last two decades transnational education has intensified. This paper provides a case study of transnational education in South East Asia by mapping historical and current transnational psychology education in Australia, Singapore and Malaysia. Given psychology’s roots in Europe and the United States of America, and its close interrelation with norms of ‘western’ societies, the data accrued from research for this paper raises important questions regarding how South East Asian countries are dealing with foreign influence through education.
