Transnational education conference 2021+: reviewing the role of TNE in tackling global challenges

3 Nov - 4 Nov 2021, 09:00 - 14:00

UUKi’s transnational education conference returns on 3 and 4 November. You can register your interest here and be the first to find out when tickets are available.   

TNE 2021+ will focus on the role that transnational education has to play in global challenges such as climate change, Covid-19 recovery and geopolitical tensions. 


Some of the questions we will be exploring include: 

  • At a time when the sector is reassessing the impact of physical mobility on the climate, does TNE offer a cost-effective option, keeping the benefits of internationalisation while reducing its negative impact?  

  • Is TNE always a force for good, supporting capacity building and levelling opportunities, or can TNE partnerships contribute to global inequalities?  

  • As TNE operations grow ever more complex, how can we support an integrated approach to TNE that is sustainable and transparent? 

Conference sessions will cover the three main models of transnational delivery: overseas campuses, online education and collaborative provision. 

The conference will be held over two days in November and will feature a mixture of plenary and breakout sessions.  

We have a range of sponsorship opportunities available at this event. Please contact Donna Taibe, Events and Admin Coordinator, for information. Email:
