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 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 international tertiary education conference will take place biennially in the UK. This year's conference took place  from Monday 20 November to Wednesday 23 November 2023 in Edinburgh.
