International partnerships are the lifeblood of higher education, ensuring that our universities remain connected and relevant in a rapidly changing world. They are also expensive and time-consuming to establish, with return on investment difficult to measure. Transnational education is perhaps the most important and difficult area to evaluate for future potential. The demand for overseas delivery is theoretically tremendous and growing, but many providers have so far struggled to achieve sustainability. As we witness the decline of the branch campus era, what models of TNE partnerships are thriving or emerging? Gathered through quantitative research and interviews with sector leaders, this analysis will cover global demand for TNE and profiles of innovative approaches to partnership in the three leading study destinations.
This presentation will inform higher education professionals about changes in the global TNE landscape and introduce emerging approaches to partnership.
