UK releases new international education strategy

August 8, 2013

The UK has released a new international education strategy that says it would be “realistic” for foreign student numbers to grow by 20% in the next 5 years, which would mean an extra 90,000 international students studying at UK institutions. The report, “International Education – Global Growth and Prosperity,” also sets out several other plans, including a new unit to support large-scale commercial partnerships abroad, the development of the UK’s FutureLearn platform for massive open online courses (MOOCs), an enhanced recruitment website and ad campaign, and a doubled investment in internationaldevelopment partnerships for education.” Times Higher Education | New York Times
