This masterclass will empower you to gain a greater understanding of national systems, and to use the resources available to shape and develop your internationalisation strategy.

The international HE landscape is changing rapidly in terms of mobility of students, staff, institutions, programmes/courses, and researchers, and increasingly university research is produced through collaboration with international partners.

As higher education is becoming increasingly international it is crucial to be positioned to engage collaboratively with partner organisations, and to have a rounded understanding of the policy environments and regulatory frameworks in place in other national systems.

Since 2016, the British Council has been building a resource of research in international higher education which profiles the national policy environment for international collaboration in HE in several countries (The shape of global higher education).

For May 2018, ‘The shape of global higher education’ will include a detailed look at the national policies in all ten ASEAN countries, and this masterclass will provide participants with an opportunity to gain early access to this comparative data, and discuss the implications with the lead researchers.

This masterclass is designed for:

  • Decision makers and strategists in international facing roles within institutions covering TNE, mobility and research collaboration.

Participant learning outcomes:

  • Understand the Global Gauge of higher education policy, what it can be used for and how to use it;
  • Appreciate the importance of national policies and frameworks when developing international HE strategies
  • Understand some of the implications of “The shape of global higher education” study for practitioners and leaders in international HE;
  • Plan how to identify geographic priorities for their international strategy, and guidance of how to implement that plan;
  • Gain early access to the latest volume of ‘The shape of global higher education’  which focusses on countries within ASEAN.

Advanced preparation:
Prior to the masterclass participants will be required to complete a short survey – we will use this to understand more about the needs and priorities of workshop participants, and tailor the content accordingly.
