Advance HE has been supporting higher education sectors across the globe to develop their Transnational Education (TNE), in partnership with institutions across borders and the development and quality of overseas campuses.
We co-design programmes of work with education ministries, sector organisations and individual institutions to support their internationalisation goals. We can review barriers and drivers to success, convene partnerships and develop roadmaps for TNE development.
How we’re supporting sectors with transnational education (TNE)
Diagnose and Discover
Conducting landscape and needs analysis on a higher education sector’s internationalisation and partnerships strategy. This identifies key achievements and an identification of the key barriers and drivers to success and how any gaps might be resolved in the country’s universities’ internationalisation development.
Delivery and Impact
Facilitating partnerships – through our extensive connection in the UK and global HE system we can connect institutions to start to develop partnerships such as:
- Transnational education
- Joint or double/dual degree programmes
- Credit sharing programmes.
Toolkit development - designing a roadmap for HEIs and UK institutions to effectively engage in partnership development. The toolkit can cover a broad spectrum of areas to enable different staff groups and stakeholders to engage with TNE development; from getting started through to sustaining and growing TNE activities and partnerships.
Internationally recognised benchmarks – we support members in achieving their transnational education ambitions by enabling them to offer accredited teaching and learning staff development and aid quality assurance of their offer.
We can provide a longitudinal study of impact against an action plan and key performance indicators. We are specialists in higher education research and our expert team can provide qualitative, quantitative or mixed-methods studies.
Why Advance HE?
Advance HE connects higher education institutions and staff across the globe. We have over 400 member institutions in 33 countries, convening conversations across borders to share good practice and to tackle challenges together.
We recognise teaching and learning staff with Fellowships that benchmark experience, quality and impact and provide the credentials for movement between higher education sectors globally. We deliver international and national-level programmes to develop staff and tackle inequalities and lack of diversity through initiatives such as the Athena SWAN Charter and She Leads or Aurora.
Our work in internationalisation
Internationalisation bolsters global standing or reputation, helping to attract and retain academic communities into the future. International alliances can help maintain credibility, currency and provide sources of evidence to support achievement and progression in teaching and research.
Framework for Internationalising Higher Education
Internationalising higher education (HE) is an ongoing, institution-wide commitment to fostering a globally aware and inclusive learning environment. This process encompasses all aspects of HE, from teaching and learning to research and collaboration. Internationalisation benefits all HE students, regardless of their location, background, discipline, or mode of study.
This framework is intended for all those within HE and beyond, encompassing those who contribute to and can benefit from an internationalised sector. Its principal audiences are organisations (e.g. HE providers, agencies, bodies and employers) and individuals (e.g. staff, students and employees).

Advance HE is behind a ground-breaking project launched by the Peruvian government in Lima that could soon see Peruvian and UK universities award joint and dual degrees valid in both countries.
