NCUK is working together with the British Council, Indonesia and the Department for International Trade, Indonesia to bring together UK Universities to meet with Indonesian Universities at the British Embassy in Jakarta on Wednesday 25th September from 2pm.

The Transnational Education Symposium aims to showcase current academic partnerships and work towards the introduction of further opportunities for students to engage with a global education.

Attendees at the Symposium will discuss models and opportunities for UK-Indonesia University articulations and analyse the rise in interest for ‘dual Degrees’. Regulatory bodies and representatives from the local sector will be invited to offer insights and commentary on the landscape for present and future provision of Higher Education. The conversation will be facilitated by the introduction of case studies and examples of international student mobility in practice by selected guest speakers.

We are pleased to announce the Indonesian institutions who are confirmed to join us include: Universitas Indonesia, i3L Indonesia International Institute for Life Sciences, UKRIDA, TM College, Sampoerna University, Trisakti University, Atmajaya University, Binus University, UIN Syarif Hidayatullah, IPB University and London School Of Public Relations.

Senior collaborations director from RistekDikti, the Ministry of Research, Technology and Higher Education for Indonesia will also be in attendance and we’re delighted that Rob Fenn, Deputy Head of Mission and Mildred Pantouw, education & skills adviser to the Foreign & Commonwealth Office from the British Embassy as well as Rachmalia Nikijuluw from the UK Department of International Trade will be presenting an overview of the market and opportunities.

Participation in the Symposium, we hope, will be a springboard to further collaboration opportunities in Indonesia and that this event is just the beginning of a regular forum for discussion and development.

NCUK offers a viable partnership opportunity for universities to engage in articulation between the UK and their country. Its great timing to work between Indonesian and UK institutions to share curriculum development and give student the chance to experience the best of both in their study options. Whether at undergraduate or postgraduate level, the Transnational Symposium has been set up to allow a forum for exchange of ideas and establishment of long-term partnerships.

Katy Christie, Regional Director

Transnational Education – as defined by QAA –  is essentially higher education delivered overseas, it is an integral and expanding part of UK higher education provision. Over 80 percent of all UK degree-awarding bodies are engaged in some form of TNE, either through distance learning, partnerships, or branch campus arrangements. This provision is delivered in over 200 countries worldwide and UK institutions are continuously seeking to improve the quality of UK higher education wherever it is delivered.

The TNE Symposium will allow institutions from each nation to gain an in-depth understanding of the specific features and challenges involved in academic delivery and operations and to establish stronger links with the host country quality assurance bodies.
