Opportunities and challenges in the internationalisation of the Philippine higher education sector 


August 2015


This report was commissioned by the British Council to identify opportunities, challenges and ways forward for the internationalisation of higher education in the Philippines.

The methodology comprised desk research as well as a scoping visit to the Philippines that involved a wide range of consultation meetings with higher education agencies and organisations.

The report provides an analytical insight into the higher education system in the Philippines and its readiness to engage internationally. It also sets out some of the opportunities and challenges for the Philippine higher education sector within a global and regional context, and for international higher education institutions looking to engage with the Philippines.
