Engaging with Mexico: New developments and opportunities for international higher education partnerships

26 Apr 2018, 15:30 - 16:30

With a culture of internationalisation in the Mexican higher education system, ambition to grow higher education in country and a Mutual Recognition of Qualifications Agreement between the UK and Mexican governments make Mexico a country to watch for transnational education (TNE). 

In just the past three years (from 2013-14 to 2016-17) the number of UK TNE students in Mexico grew by a staggering 179%. What has led to this and how might it evolve in future?

On Thursday 26 April, this webinar will look at opportunities for UK universities to partner with Mexico. Experts contributing to the discussion include UUKi team members and the British Council in Mexico. We will look at Mexico’s higher education system, recent policy developments, and new opportunities for engaging with Mexican universities, including advice on how to best identify in-country partners for new TNE partnerships.​​
