Getting involved with our schedule of events

Starting in December 2022, and ending in Autumn 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.

For the latest updates on planned events and important Commission news, you can join our mailing list. If you decide later that you don’t want to hear from us, it’s easy to unsubscribe using the link in any of our emails.
