In Malaysia the particular objective of the group was to understand the current stage of implementation of the Higher Education Blueprint, and identify any resulting opportunities for collaboration. In Vietnam the core activity was participation in a Global Education Dialogue focused upon employability and university-business interaction. Within this context, the delegation sought to gain a better understanding of the ambitions and opportunities for international collaboration in both countries.
The delegation was organised by the UK Higher Education International Unit (IU) with funding support from UK Trade & Investment (UKTI) and organisational support from the British High Commission in Malaysia and British Council Vietnam.
This visit report provides a summary of meetings throughout the delegation and an indication of future IU activity in the region.
