We look forward to welcoming you to a workshop and discussion on the shape of global higher education.


How does domestic policy support international HE activity? How can HE institutions use this information to inform their international strategies?

Our study: ‘The Shape of Global Higher Education’ has now been extended to include 38 countries. We have adapted the online Global Gauge of HE policy to describe the national environment for HE collaboration from a policy perspective, and also now in terms of the key activities of HE institutions:

- International student mobility

- Transnational education

- International research collaboration

The tool also now allows users to explore how the 1,400 qualitative measures of HE policy can be used to inform your international strategy.  It presents summarised answers to big international questions including: “Which countries do most to support international student moblilty?”; “Which countries formally recognise TNE qualifications?’; ‘Which countries do most to incentivise internationally collaborative research?’

Guest speakers:

  • Andy Westwood, Professor of FE and HE at the University of Wolverhampton, Co-Director of Policy@Manchester and Chair of the OECD Forum on Social Innovation.
  • Vincenzo Raimo, Pro Vice Chancellor (Global Engagement), University of Reading
