Eligibility Individual with proven knowledge in the field of HE and especially on TNE in Greece and the UK

We are looking for an expert to conduct research on Higher Education institutional collaborations between Greece and the UK in the field of Trans-National Education (TNE). 

Background

Greece is leading UK TNE in Europe with more than 12,000 Greeks studying UK courses in-country. Also, Greece is among the top ten markets globally, ranked 3rd in number of UK programmes and 7th in enrolments.

In the UK, in the months following the EU referendum, questions about how UK universities will maintain their relationships across the EU have broadened. In the midst of concerns that EU students may find UK degrees become less out of reach financially and socially, it is reported that many university leaders and policy makers are considering transnational education. 

British Council Greece is conducting this research to collect data about the nature and scale of interest from local state and private institutions for TNE with UK institutions as well as to gain an indepth understanding of the financial, legal, institutional and recognition related issues that may affect growth in this sector in Greece and the UK.

The findings of the research will enable the Greek office to develop a strategy of engagement with policy makers and institutions aiming to support the development of HE partnerships between the two countries.
