About the
TNE Impact Project

The TNE Impact Project

The TNE Impact Project is an initiative supported by British Council and developed by Dr Vangelis Tsiligkiris, Associate Professor at Nottingham Trent University and founder of the TNE Hub, and Dr Janet Ilieva, Director and founder of Education Insight.

The global growth of TNE in recent decades has been one of the defining stories of international education and has had significant impact on both host countries and provider countries, providing greater opportunities for students and increasing access to international education opportunities. Also, TNE partnerships have a significant impact in the economy and society of host countries and therefore contribute in promoting several of the United Nations' Sustainable Development Goals.

"The Value of Transnational Education Partnerships" is research project led by Kevin Van Cauter and commissioned by the British Council to fill the knowledge gap by evidencing the benefits of TNE partnerships beyond the economic value, including, but not limited to, widening access to high quality higher education and capability building of host country institutions and systems. The research seeked to capture evidence through the entire range of UK TNE partnerships, balancing between high volume (e.g., franchising, validation, online provision) and niche (e.g., joint PhDs and masters’ programmes) forms.

Emanating from the "The Value of Transnational Education Partnerships" research; The British Council, Education Insight and the TNE Hub aspired to create an open access repository of case studies that capture and show case the invaluable impact of transnational education partnerships.

This open access repository, called "TNE IMPACT", will serve as a useful resource for researchers, policy makers, prospective students, and other stakeholders who would like to understand the global and local impact of UK universities.
