Transnational education (TNE) is an important area for UK higher degree-awarding providers. 142 UK providers have students on TNE programmes and more than 650,000 students’ study for UK awards through transnational provision, including through open and distance learning. The Department for Education (DfE) estimates that UK higher education TNE contributes over £600 million in exports to the UK economy and is currently delivered in 226 locations worldwide.
But how do we judge the quality of transnational provision in a Covid era?
This webinar will focus on the innovative approaches undertaken by QSN member institutions to ensure that baseline quality requirements are being met whilst international travel restrictions are likely to remain across the sector during the rest of 2020/21.
If you would like to present a 7 -minute ‘Lightning Talk’ please contact email@example.com.
This webinar will take place via Zoom. A link will be sent out in the joining instructions.
