***Full-scale policy conference taking place online***
This conference will examine priorities for the UK’s transnational education (TNE) provision and exports in light of the COVID-19 pandemic, the UK leaving the EU, and the introduction of the TNE Quality Enhancement Scheme from the QAA.
It will be an opportunity to analyse mechanisms for quality assurance and their potential knock-on effects on exports - as well as consider opportunities for growth and expansion, and discuss wider priorities for UK TNE.
We are pleased to be able to include keynote sessions, including:
- Priorities for quality assurance in UK TNE - with Dr Abi Coveney, Senior Risk Manager, OfS; and Rosie Kennedy, Policy Specialist, QAA Global
- Collaborating internationally on quality assurance - with Professor Youhansen Eid, President, National Authority for Quality Assurance and Accreditation of Education, Egypt
- Policy priorities for the growth of UK TNE - with Aisling Conboy, Higher Education Specialist, Education Team, Department for International Trade
- Moving forward from the impact of the pandemic and the long-term outlook for UK transnational education - with Eduardo Ramos, Head of Transnational Education, Universities UK International
There will also be panels on:
- Quality and best practice - country visits, working with local regulators, and the future for metrics
- Market opportunities - UK competitiveness, partnerships, and strategies for revenue growth
Our forums are known for attracting strong interest from policymakers and stakeholders. Places have been reserved by officials from BEIS; and the Welsh Government. Also due to attend are representatives from Liverpool John Moores University; Mills & Reeve; The University of Manchester; University of Aberdeen; University of East London; and University of the Arts London.
Overall, we expect speakers and attendees to be a senior and informed group including Members of both Houses of Parliament, senior government and regulatory officials involved in this area of policy, as well as from higher education stakeholders including university leaders in the UK and abroad, student unions, programme coordinators, teachers and teaching groups, foreign embassies, virtual learning platforms, training providers, examination bodies, local government, law firms, as well as academic researchers and commentators, together with reporters from the national and specialist media.
