Our work in higher education is focused on six impact areas:

  • increase the UK’s share of the global market for international student recruitment by marketing the UK as a world-class study destination
  • create more opportunities for UK students, learners and researchers to study and work overseas
  • develop HE and TVET partnerships that support quality and internationalisation and grow the market for the UK sector with regulatory reforms to maintain UK leadership
  • create global networks of alumni of UK HEIs
  • support the UK’s international reputation for science and research
  • create more opportunities to learn from global practice and enhance the international reputation of the four education systems of the UK.
