UK HE TNE
is delivered through online/distance learning (either with or without local
support), through local delivery partnerships (eg franchised delivery, joint
and dual degrees, twinning arrangements, validation and quality arrangements)
or through a UK institution’s physical presence in another country (eg branch
campus, study centre or through flying faculty).
UK HE TNE is delivered across
almost all academic areas at all levels of study (undergraduate, postgraduate
taught and postgraduate research), often with the option to study
part time or full time.
UK HE TNE comes in all shapes and sizes. This reflects the
range, needs and interests of partner countries, prospective students and UK
universities. UK HE TNE is tailored to its settings and students. It offers
students who might not otherwise be able to access the UK’s degrees excellent
education through different modes of teaching and learning.
UK universities are growing their TNE partnerships around the world, and increasingly governments and overseas universities seek UK partners. Working together offers benefits to universities, staff and students in both the host country and in the UK. It also increases universities' global outlook and capabilities.
UK universities offer degrees overseas in many subjects and at all levels. These have become more diverse over time, and cater both to employment markets and skills priorities both in the UK and overseas.
UK HE TNE students can study at undergraduate, postgraduate taught and postgraduate research levels across almost all academic fields of study.
