Reviewing the role of TNE in tackling global challenges
The global pandemic has made evident the fragility of activities that depend on the international mobility of staff and students. This has presented the international education community with a unique opportunity to reassess the effectiveness and efficiency of transnational activities from a social, ethical and environmental perspective.
Transnational education can offer a cost-effective option to expand the benefits of internationalisation to the 98% of non-internationally mobile student population, while also reducing the negative social and environmental impacts of international mobility such as brain drain and carbon emissions.
Join UUKi on 3-4 November to explore the role of TNE in tackling pressing global challenges that pre-dated the global pandemic, but that have been exacerbated by it, such as:
- Global warming
- Growing inequalities
- Digital inequities
The conference will feature a range of sessions from sector leaders, international guests, government representatives and TNE experts.
If your institution is a UUK member, you can book at our member price.
In addition to this, you can see additional UUKi members here.
