Universities UK International with Farrer & Co has created guidance on transnational education regulation in nine of the top 10 EU destinations for UK TNE activity: Greece, Ireland, Cyprus, Germany, Spain, Malta, Romania, Austria, and Italy.

It aims to provide practical guidance in respect of the likely issues arising from the UK leaving the EU without a negotiated agreement (no-deal Brexit), to support UK universities with contingency planning in respect of EU TNE.
