This Global Education Policy dialogue brings together key stakeholders and influencers so that they can reflect on and debate the challenges and opportunities facing international higher education. It will bring together tertiary and workforce policy makers at national and regional level, members of the business community and key practitioners from South Asia and the UK to examine these core themes.

  • Knowledge exchange and innovation – research in action
  • Talent management and professional development – the 21st century researcher
