The challenges and realities of transnational national education in South East Asia

The University of Nottingham shared its expertise and knowledge on higher education collaboration at the recent UK-Vietnam Partnership Workshop held in Hanoi.

The event, held in conjunction with the British Council and Vietnam National University, also offered the opportunity for members of the UK International Teaching Partnership Development Forum - set up in 2009 as an international higher education good practice exchange - to contribute to teaching partnership expertise in Vietnamese universities and learn more about Vietnamese international educational opportunities.

The workshop in Vietnam was part of a broader programme, involving events in Malaysia and India, which marked the launch of the Nottingham Global Network, bringing together the University’s institutional partners around the world currently working together for mutual benefit in the areas of research, internationalisation, student experience and business engagement.

Dr Christopher Hill, founding member of the Knowledge Without Borders Network (KWBN) at the University of Nottingham Malaysia Campus, delivered a public talk entitled ‘Internationalisation of the Local and the Localisation of the International’ that examined the motivations, benefits and challenges of developing transnational national education programmes in in South East Asia. Dr Hill has contributed a fascinating and thought provoking post on the KWBN blog, based on UK-Vietnam Partnership Workshop.
