Going Global is a conference for leaders in international education to debate the future of further and higher education. 

Since its inception in 2004, the British Council’s flagship Going Global conference has provided a strategic forum for leaders in international education to connect, share knowledge and build a global network of senior leaders and policy influencers to shape the future of further and higher education.

As part of our new conference model the Going Global education conference will take place biennially in the UK. This will be an international, face-to- face conference. The next international conference will take place in the UK 20-23 November 2023 in Edinburgh. We will share more details soon.

The first of these regional events was Going Global Asia Pacific 2022, exploring International Education in the UK and Asia Pacific region: How to pursue equity in an inequitable world. The conference was held in Singapore.  You can find the highlights of this conference from the past events page.
