Context and audience

This one-day symposium hosted by King's College, London will bring together researchers and practitioners specialising in transnational education (TNE). Following from the 1st and 2nd TNE-Hub Symposia, This event will aim to highlight the hidden benefits of TNE, which are often neglected in the generalisation that TNE is mostly a commercial and financially driven activity. Also, now that the UN SGDs are becoming central to the strategy of universities, this event will provide an opportunity for HEIs, and researchers, to develop cases of impact for their existing TNE activities.

Call for papers

The organising committee invites proposals for 15-20-minute presentations that discuss the purpose and impact of TNE. Proposals should be submitted in the form of a working title and abstract of no more than 200 words. Proposals should be sent to: info@tnehub.org


Closing date for proposals: Friday 28 February 2020

The organising committee for the symposium will evaluate proposed papers using the following criteria: 

  • Clarity of the benefits and wider impact of TNE in both the exporting and importing institutions and countries.

  • Reflection on the wider implications for management practice and leadership in international higher education.

  • Robustness of research findings or management best practices.
