This report provides details on transnational education (TNE) activities by UK higher education institutions (HEIs). Transnational education refers to the provision of education for students based in a country other than the one in which the awarding institution is located. For example, transnational education can be delivered via overseas branch campuses, distance learning or partnerships with overseas institutions. Data is sourced from a survey of HEIs and case studies of TNE programmes. The report provides details on: - the modes of TNE delivery offered by UK HEIs - the number of students studying on TNE programmes offered by UK HEIs - the value of transnational education activities to UK HEIs
