UK universities are facing a decline in student numbers due to recent changes in funding and policy that saw dramatic increases in tertiary fees. Although the impact has adversely affected both domestic and international enrolments, institutions have seen an increase in the number of transnational education (TNE) students, who study through UK-based higher education institutions whilst residing outside of the UK. This growth mirrors a larger trend of increasing global tertiary enrolments and mobile student enrolments.

Advances in learner technology have transformed course delivery, reducing the need for students to physically attend lessons in order to learn. With some experts predicting that by 2020, 40 per cent of higher education provided by English-speaking countries will be delivered transnationally to around 1.4 million students, UK transnational students have become a progressively important demographic.

This special report offers insight into the increasing TNE student-base among UK higher education institutions and the different delivery models. Using historical and current figures from the Higher Education Statistics Agency (HESA) and other key sources, the report features an overview of the latest state of play for the sector. Content includes key numbers, trends, primary sources of TNE students enrolled in UK universities, student motives for pursuing TNE, preferred degrees and the most popular UK institutions for TNE students.

Given the demand for TNE is likely to continue growing, this special report provides a valuable resource for institutions and related stakeholders investigating growth opportunities and developing recruitment strategies.

'The opportunities for TNE look set to grow as developing countries continue to diversify their economics and increase access to high quality education to train expanding generations of students. Particular promise is indicated in countries seeing sharp population and economic growth ... and those with governments that are strategically looking to promote student mobility and internationalisation in higher education.'
