Project Summary

Background: There are growing market opportunities in transnational education (TNE) across the Asia-Pacific, however detailed information is not available on the forms, scale and scope of cross-border provider mobility occurring in the region. Information is also not widely available on the policies and governance arrangements in APEC economies in relation to TNE. The need to define these policies, regulatory issues and practices was a significant outcome of the workshop on Enhancing Provider Mobility in Cross Border Higher Education, held in Hanoi in March 2015.

What this project aims to achieve?
This project will provide a ‘snapshot’ of TNE in the higher education sector. A survey will be undertaken to quantify the extent of TNE within APEC economies. The survey will also collect information on APEC economies’ existing TNE governance arrangements. It will propose a broader definition of provider mobility to include all forms of TNE such as institutional linkages, partnerships and agreements, offshore programmes and branch campuses as well as online education arrangements.

Planned activities to attain the project objectives:
A working group of policy experts from interested APEC economies will be established to produce the survey instrument considering the context of each economy. Research will then be conducted, in consultation with interested APEC economies and their local stakeholders to detail the different education modes of offshore delivery by mobile providers in APEC economies.

Findings will be distributed to APEC economies. This will give institutions and governments across the Asia Pacific greater understanding of the scale and scope of TNE and allow them to include this information in future policy decisions.

Timing:
The project will run from June 2015 to December 2016.

Location:
The meeting of the working group will be held in Australia.
The contractor will visit interested APEC economies.
