Education’s Asia for the 21st Century?
March 30th, 2017, 9am to 5pm
Manchester Conference Centre Sackville Street, Manchester M13BB
Economic, demographic & socio-economic signs all point to the potential of Africa being the next Asia in terms of international HE. African students remain the most mobile in the world, the African Union’s recent commitment to catch up with global tertiary enrolment rates will not be achieved without international involvement & the British Council predicted that in the next few years, Nigeria would overtake India as the second largest market for international students to the UK. And yet, overall recruitment numbers have flat-lined in the major markets. We explore why and examine factors that point to a more holistic and committed strategy for Africa that could spread risk and build on the internationalisation agenda.
With expertise from MGH Educonsult and TNE Consultancy, and supported by the Training Gateway, this event will offer participants the opportunity to hear from Africa education experts, and learn about the latest trends & developments in African HE & how these may impact on providers seeking to engage with the region. A comprehensive and data- driven agenda examines traditional student recruitment, partnerships & TNE at strategic & operational levels.
