UK-East Asia TNE Forum – Beyond Institutional Partnership: Engaging TNE Students and Academics 
3 March 2020, Sunway University, Kuala Lumpur 
  
East Asia and the UK have developed close collaborations in TNE through bi-lateral, multi-lateral, regional, and sector level agreements. East Asia is home to the top four TNE markets; and hosts over a third of all UK transnational education students. It is mostly agreed that a key challenge is attracting and retaining high-quality UK and international faculty and supporting academic professional development, as well as ensuring that TNE students get the positive and unique experiences that the UK offers and ensuring engagement and recognition of local employers and communities.  
  
To respond to the challenges and opportunities in the region, the British Council will be hosting the UK-East Asia TNE Forum in Kuala Lumpur on 3 March 2020 with the theme of Beyond Institutional Partnership: Engaging TNE Students and Academics. It will provide a platform for key decision makers, TNE providers and practitioners from the region and the UK to discuss and explore how we could jointly ensure quality assurance, positive student experience and faculty collaborations to shape the future of UK-EA TNE partnerships.
