UK higher education as both a destination for international students and strategic partner for collaboration within transnational education (TNE) continues to be an area of success. The UK international education strategy of 2019 set a target of 600,000 foreign enrolment students by 2030 and this was met by 2021. Business schools have been at the forefront of this growth both at home and regarding TNE.
This level of growth has led to both opportunities and challenges when considering scale, quality and the expectation and needs of students and colleagues.
This collaborative project will provide a supportive but critical environment for the development of new practices, processes and areas of impact underpinned by clear strategic intent and a desire for excellence.
"The continued success of UK business schools as a destination for international students and hubs for transnational education also brings a range of challenges. This collaborative project is designed to bring together UK business schools to share best practice and have a dedicated space to develop future plans and policies for impact and success.”
