NCUK is delighted to be able to take part in the next Higher Education Dialogues series organised by British council.

As demand for higher education outstrips supply globally, will the current situation accelerate the growth of transnational education? The fast transformation of delivery models means that higher education could be delivered through a wide variety of programmes and platforms (distance learning programmes, teaching partnerships, offshore campuses and, increasingly Massive Open Online Courses‎ (MOOCs)). What will be the new geographical spread of TNE and its impact?  How will the current crisis influence the demand for distance learning?

As part of British Council’s #AtHome programme, this is a fantastic opportunity for you to connect with colleagues from across the world and share experiences. The theme of the discussion is What is the future of transnational education?’ and the session will take place on Wednesday 17th June from 14.00-15.00 (GMT+1).
