Starting in December 2022, and ending in mid-November 2023, the International Higher Education Commission will include a series of virtual and in-person events as an integral fact-finding element in its mission to develop an ‘International Education Strategy 2.0’.
This will be an inclusive and transparent process. We are committed to ensuring that the many voices interested in establishing a successful future strategy are heard. There will be open events and online discussions to ensure that this is a democratic exercise.
It’s important that public institutions, private providers and interested parties from the Higher Education sector are fairly represented and heard during this discovery process. We’ll make this series of roundtable discussions accessible to individuals and institutions across the regions and devolved nations of the UK.
The latest upcoming events are listed below.

This is the 4th report produced to support the work of the International Higher Education Commission – by providing the data, insight and evidence necessary to establish a new and relevant ‘International Education Strategy 2.0’ Building on the recently launched British Council Transnational Education Strategy 2023–25, this report details the context and dynamics of TNE and how to realise its potential to generate substantially enhanced academic, operational and financial returns for UK providers and their overseas partners, augment experiences and widen access for students, and provide talent pipelines for industry on a global, scalable and sustainable basis.
The latest report commissioned by the International Higher Education Commission (IHEC) reveals a decline in the international diversity of UK campuses. The loss of incoming Erasmus+ exchange students and UK students' decline in foreign language studies are contributing factors. To address this issue, the IHEC recommends that internationalisation at home to be one of the central parts of the UK's higher education strategy. The report provides several recommendations to enhance the advantages of internationalisation at home, including strengthening capacity and capability across various aspects of internationalisation. More details for a new international higher education strategy will be outlined in a final report planned to be published this November.
Our latest report, compiled by London Higher and Middlesex University, explores the challenges and aspirations of London-based international students.
Informed by a roundtable discussion, the report reiterates the wide range of factors influencing the university journey of London-based international students, including the availability of accommodation; the challenges of rising costs; and expectations around academic performance.
The new report highlights the key policy areas that must be addressed to improve the student experience and keep London competitive, namely: Employability, Accessibility, Integration, Transportation and Representation. More broadly, the report underlines the importance of bringing international students to the forefront of discussions examining higher education policy.
