Going Global is an annual conference hosted by the British Council, offering an open forum for global leaders of international education to discuss issues facing the international education community. Since its inception in 2004, Going Global has grown from a biennial event in the UK to an annual event alternating between the UK and major international cities such as Hong Kong and Dubai. We are extremely pleased to be taking the conference to Miami in 2014. A city that is emerging as one of the world’s hubs for transport, banking and trade as well as culture and education and one that provides a bridge between Latin, Central and North America.
Each year Going Global attracts over 1,000 registered delegates from across the tertiary (further and higher) education sectors and a variety of other industries with perspectives on international education. The conferences consist of a series of sessions based around the year's chosen themes. Sessions take the form of panel debates, multi-presentation sessions and poster presentations. The event provides the platform for networking and has become a fixture of the global education calendar.
