Date/Time
Date(s) - 21/03/2013
08:30 - 13:00

Guests of Honour: Maddalaine Ansell, Head of International Knowledge & Innovation Unit, Department for Business, Innovation and Skills and Professor Colin Riordan, Chair, UK Higher Education International Unit (UKHEIU) and Vice-Chancellor, Cardiff University

This seminar will bring together key policymakers with senior stakeholders from across the HE sector to discuss the emerging challenges and opportunities presented by the increasing internationalisation of Higher Education, as well as the next steps for government policy in this area.

Central to discussion will be the competitiveness and attractiveness of UK universities in the globalised higher education market, particularly given recent non-EU student visa reform and growing competition for domestic students from European and American universities. Sessions will also cover the next steps for building UK students’ involvement in the Erasmus programme and student exchange in general, as well as the increasing trend for UK universities to open campuses overseas.
