Using our newly released Scale of UK HE TNE report, we'll take stock of the crossroads we find ourselves at and unpick the data behind the student numbers. We'll examine the challenges and opportunities we're facing: Brexit, demographic shift, technological innovation and the emergence of new competitors and partners. We'll take a look at how regulatory reform overseas is opening up new opportunities for UK providers and how UK universities can make efficient and effective use of their resources to expand overseas.
We'll explore the questions that will shape the future of TNE: how can we maximise the role of TNE as a valuable education export, and generator of soft power, to fulfil the ambitions of the International Education Strategy: global potential, global growth and help the UK further grow its standing on the world stage post-Brexit? How can institutions balance capacity-building TNE initiatives with the need to break even? How will future technologies transform the international education landscape?
Book your place now to join colleagues from across the UK and beyond in conversation at Woburn House for the UK's largest conference dedicated to all things TNE.

What do the latest figures tell us about UK TNE?
Kicking off this year's conference, our director Vivienne Stern will introduce key findings of UUKi's newly-launched report: 'The Scale of UK HE TNE'.
We'll discuss macro trends, region-specific consolidation and emerging markets as we start to unlock the story behind the student numbers.
Speaker: Vivienne Stern, Director, Universities UK International
What does the International Education Strategy mean for TNE?
With the International Education Strategy on everyone's minds, this Ministerial address will provide an opportunity to consider the value of TNE to the UK, and to hear how the government can support the sector's transnational delivery ambitions.
Speaker to be announced
How can UK institutions make the most of TNE growth opportunities overseas?
In this session we'll hear from key government representatives from countries with a strong appetite for collaboration with UK higher education. Speakers will cover priorities and target areas for their countries, and we'll discuss opportunities for engagement with the UK.
Speakers to be announced
The Government's international education strategy looks ahead to 2030, but what will TNE look like in 2030? What can be achieved, and what is preventing the UK from meeting the strategy's goals? How will the UK's TNE offer need to develop in order to address both global and domestic challenges?
In this final session, our panel will grapple with these complex questions that will define the direction of travel for our sector in the years to come.
Join us as a panel of senior university representatives discuss the support institutions need to achieve the goals of the International Education Strategy and explore the trends that will define transnational education in 2030.
How can UK universities make sure that they are managing the
risks of operating overseas appropriately? Working with overseas partners,
running programmes remotely and navigating changing regulations – delivering
TNE comes with an element of risk. This session will examine these risks and
how to mitigate and manage them.
