Transnational education (TNE) has evolved over the last few years from a peripheral activity to a core part of the education landscape. There are now over half a million students studying UK programmes outside the UK. TNE has become a key part of both institutional and governmental strategies to improve education systems around the world, attract globally mobile students and foster partnerships between nations. The conference we're organising will highlight the global impact of TNE, putting it in the context of Greece but also including case studies from a variety of countries.
The conference is being organised under the auspices of the Ministry of Education with the support of the British Embassy and in partnership with the University of Piraeus, University of Macedonia, School of Pedagogical and Technological Education, City College/University of Sheffield International Faculty, IST/Independent College of Science and Technology and Business College of Athens.
