Overview

21 Jul, 20229:00 am-3:30 pm

This training course will examine the future for transnational education partnerships in China post-Covid-19, considering the legal, financial, academic, and ethical implications for UK universities working in China today. You will have the opportunity to examine the logistical requirements for developing new programmes and continuing relationships with Chinese partners, as well as discussing the concerns raised by Covid-19 and the current international landscape.

As many UK universities have already developed their partnerships with Chinese institutions, and with Chinese students making up 38.7% of international students in the UK in 2019/20 (HESA), developing and nurturing partnerships with China is a key strategic objective for UK higher education providers.

Learning Objectives:

  • Understand and overcome the specific logistical and ethical challenges in developing TNE partnerships in the Chinese market
  • Explore the post-Covid-19 landscape for Sino-British transnational higher education
  • Examine the critical requirements for successful TNE partnerships in China in the 2020s and beyond
  • Ensure TNE programmes meet the academic standards and policies of both Chinese and British regulatory bodies
  • Develop an action plan for effective partnership development and expansion
