TNE - HEGlobal

Transnational education (TNE) refers to education provision for students based in a country other than the one in which the awarding institution is located. For the UK, this means students based overseas studying for UK educational qualifications.

TNE has become a major part of the UK higher education landscape, and sits at the heart of the internationalisation strategies of many UK universities. By 2010 the number of students (undergraduate and postgraduate) studying for a UK degree overseas was over 408,000 - a greater number than the number of international students studying in the UK (405,000).
