Our Higher Education Senior Adviser John Bramwell will be chairing the session 'Brazil and Indonesia: Engagement and Access'.

Experienced speakers from Brazil and Indonesia discuss government strategies to support internationalisation in the two countries. This conversation will be of particular interest to those with partnerships, or looking to develop partnerships, with universities in Brazil and Indonesia.


Professor Rossana Valéria de Souza e Silva, Executive Director, Coimbra Group of Brazilian Universities

Susan Milner, Education Director South East Asia, British Council

Chair: John Bramwell, Director of Higher Education - Americas, British Council

Our CEO Sir Ciaran Devane will be speaking at the closing plenary 'Do we need a new international strategy for the UK?'

Having opened the day examining other national strategies for higher education, we will end the day discussing potential domestic approaches. How can universities work with government and business to help the UK flourish as an open and welcoming hub post-Brexit? And how can policy-makers maximise the opportunities for one of the UK’s most successful sectors? We will welcome senior speakers from the higher education sector, government and business to give their perspectives on the model post-Brexit international strategy for higher education and research.
