HE Commission seeks evidence on inquiry into UK HE exports

Universities have been invited to submit evidence to the Higher Education Commission's sixth cross-party inquiry, examining the export potential for the UK’s higher education sector.

The inquiry, co-chaired by Professor Simon Marginson, the Director of the Centre for Global Higher Education at UCL Institute of Education, and Conservative Peer Lord Norton of Louth, follows a report issued by the Department for Education showing that in 2014 the total value of UK education-related exports and Transnational Education (TNE) activity was estimated to be £18.76 billion. With less than two years remaining to meet the government's target of increasing the value of education exports to £30 billion, the Higher Education Commission will be investigating the viability of this task.

To submit evidence, contact Pooja Kumari, Research Manager:  pooja.kumari@policyconnect.org.uk
