British Council | British Embassy Athens |

Transnational education (TNE) has evolved over the last few years from a peripheral activity to a core part of the education landscape. There are now over half a million students studying UK programmes outside the UK. TNE has become a key part of both institutional and governmental strategies to improve education systems around the world, attract globally mobile students and foster partnerships between nations. The conference we’re organising will highlight the global impact of TNE, putting it in the context of Greece but also including case studies from a variety of countries.

The conference is being organised under the auspices of the Ministry of Education with the support of the British Embassy and in partnership with the University of Piraeus, University of Macedonia, School of Pedagogical and Technological Education, City College/University of Sheffield International Faculty, IST/Independent College of Science and Technology and Business College of Athens.

The aims of the one-day event are to:

raise awareness of the definition and diversity of TNE provision
facilitate contact and dialogue in order to explore the potential for TNE and partnerships within the European Higher Education Area (EHEA)
hear from higher education institutions who have set up successful overseas operations and international partnerships
offer a global perspective on managing quality assurance of international partnerships
look at issues around quality assurance for all kinds of TNE delivery modes.
The invited audience will include ministerial officials, senior academics, decision makers and education experts from the Ministry of Education, universities and private colleges in Greece and neighbouring countries.


Setting the Scene – global trends in TNE
Case Studies – the local, European and international reality
Quality Assurance – challenges, solutions, perspectives
