The HEA is committed to promoting an equitable and global learning experience for all students on UK higher education programmes, whether they are studying in the UK or abroad. We do this by working closely with higher education institutions, key partner organisations and our practice networks to develop international teaching and the research and evidence that underpin it.

We believe that policy and pedagogic practice that works for international students also works for the benefit of all students. We promote a curriculum which is informed by a broader global view, that is taught in a range of ways and enables students to study abroad to learn more about themselves, their disciplines and their future professions.

Internationalising higher education framework  A new strategic framework to inspire and assist higher education (HE) providers and agencies in helping prepare students of UK HE programmes to live in and contribute to a globally interconnected society was launched at the HEA's 2014 Annual Conference - read the press release and download the framework.
