Testimonials from past IHEF conferences:

"In my opinion, IHEF is the most important international conference in the UK. It's an unmatched mix of high profile speakers, opinion and debate relevant to international HE."

"IHEF was an excellent event with very timely topics. Fascinating talks and discussions brought a bit of optimism to our 'home offices' and inspiration on how to deliver internationalisation in times of crisis and beyond."

"I found it informative and encouraging to see so many people united in our shared passion for international education and the benefits it brings to the British economy and cultural diversity."
