The global context for higher education is changing fast and internationalisation is now an integral part of higher education strategies. In our global International Higher Education programme, we aim to create collaborative partnerships, promote policy debates and provide independent analysis and advice on international higher education trends and opportunities. We build partnerships between UK higher education institutions and other countries, and support the exchange and mobility of academics, scholars and students.

Going Global is an international conference on higher education. We offer a platform for higher education leaders to discuss the pressing issues facing the sector. Going Global 2021 is about reimagining international higher education for a post-pandemic world. 

Future News Worldwide is a partnership programme between the British Council and some of the world's leading media organisations. Each year we bring together 100 of the world's most talented, motivated and passionate student journalists to attend an intensive media training programme. 

Researcher Connect is a communication skills training for researchers using the medium of English. With strong communication skills, researchers are more likely to be successful at publishing their innovative work, applying for funding and increasing their international network.
