Reboot and refresh; defining new futures for international education

At a time of potential change to the way the United Kingdom can operate with its international partners, the sector must be prepared to reset and revise its strategic ambitions, and quickly find opportunity in a new, uncertain landscape. The path we will take from 31 October remains unclear, but we can be certain that the progression of digital technology and communications will continue to profoundly affect the methods through which we engage international audiences.

On 3 - 4 December the British Council invites the international education sector to come together to reboot and reload our strategies; explore and face the impact of the United Kingdom's exit from the European Union and define our new future – working together to attract, educate and support sophisticated and technologically astute global students, who in many cases will go on to influence the futures of their own countries.

Call for proposals

We have received a great number of proposals this year, covering the full range of international education, including aspects affecting international research, schools, FE, ELT and HE. We are interested in varied formats for content including ignite sessions, fishbowl sessions, soapbox discussions, interactive workshops, panel discussions, poster presentations and other interesting ways to communicate to the audience. The conference is always a fantastic opportunity to make connections across the sector and develop business opportunities.
