New UK–China TNE agreement announced

18 March 2016

The first ever UK-China Education Policy Week concluded on Friday 18 March, with the announcement of a statement of principles that will inform transnational education programmes between both countries.

The principles include developing regular channels of communication to support sharing of data and information, exploring ways to enhance inter-agency cooperation, and recognising the importance of sharing best practice and experience. All participant parties commit to following these agreed principles when establishing transnational education programmes.

The statement was jointly developed by the British Council, the China Education International Exchange Association, the China Academic Degrees and Graduate Education Development Centre, the Quality Assurance Agency for Higher Education, and the UK Higher Education International Unit, in consultation with the sector.
