Higher education is one of the fastest growing sectors globally and tertiary enrolments, along with transnational education (TNE) and collaborative research partnerships, are expected to continue growing through this decade. In particular, TNE has become a driving force in global higher education and is expected to transform the sector in future. With a new focus on transnational education (TNE), this Partnership Access examines how higher education institutions can best implement TNE partnerships in high-risk markets to reach mutually beneficial outcomes. The report analyses TNE in emerging and developing markets, and examines the strong link between education and economic development, and how the growing global demand for higher education is especially pronounced in developing economies. As growth in demand occurs in these nations, so must tertiary provision. However, the higher education markets in many of these countries are currently small and investment, government and international, is minimal. This inevitably leads to the risks associated with ‘brain drain,’ where students who can afford international educations often do not return to their home countries. Subsequently, increasing capacity in tertiary education in developing economies becomes a critical issue, and TNE potentially becomes part of the solution. The report explores examples of the development, formation and implementation of programmes, and provides understanding on what makes for a successful TNE programme. A case study examining partnerships in Pakistan as a model for other collaborations is also presented, providing practical insights into some of the considerations facing prospective TNE suppliers.

TNE is increasingly being recognised and used as a tool to not only facilitate access to high-quality education, but to catalyse social and economic growth through international collaboration.
