Cuba: challenges and opportunities for UK higher education engagement

From 16-21 March 2017, a delegation of three Cuban Ministry of Higher Education and university officials met with UK universities, UK government, and education sector agencies. The overarching aim of the visit was to identify the level of interest in, and scope of opportunities for, new partnerships between Cuban and UK higher education sectors.

This visit report opens with a summary of Cuban higher education, including the social and economic framework under which it operates, before providing a brief overview of the visit. It closes with an overview of current funding opportunities available for UK higher education institutions wishing to engage with Cuba.
