There are lots of TNE numbers: 701,010 students registered for UK HE programmes overseas; and 82% of universities delivering TNE in over 200 locations. Which must mean TNE is earning for the UK – after all, it's been identified as a high value export and estimated at £550m in 2014-15.
But… we don't have an established metric for calculating course costs, fees or financial returns to individual institutions for TNE.
Join finance experts, tax advisors and university practitioners as they look at how to budget for TNE and work through ways to more realistically cost TNE activity from scoping the idea through to operation.

UUKi's TNE events operate strict Chatham House rules: delegates and speakers will not be asked to share their own costs or financial calculations (unless they wish to), but participants will be asked to be frank in what they have found to be successful or otherwise. UUKi hopes to produce summaries of its events but these will be in the context of practical tips for managers rather than case study documentation.
