Features for edition 16 Winter 2017

Transnational education activity is growing, driven by the desire of universities to establish overseas partnerships as well as meet students on their home turf. TNE has also captured the attention of governments as policies in both sending and receiving countries are being created to further facilitate these collaborations. From international branch campuses to curriculum sharing, we’ll explore what TNE looks like on the ground in three different education hubs and speak with the key institutions and governments shaping this quickly advancing area of international education. 

The faces of ELT: teachers
Responsible for the most face time with valuable student clients, teachers are an important asset in any successful language school operation. Beyond the relationships they build with their students, they also often hold the keys to a school's teaching quality and regulatory compliance. However, teachers organisations regularly complain that teachers are overworked and underpaid. We take a look at the transient profession English language teaching to uncover how language schools care for one of their most valuable assets. 

Central Feature: Digital Innovation
Edtech is very investable, and the last few years have seen many tech-based platforms or solutions aimed at international students emerging into the marketplace thanks to funding from investors keen to back a global winner and provide benefit to an an industry worth billions. Meanwhile companies such as education agencies are developing their own apps to help students with pre-departure preparation and to give them tips when they arrive. The student journey is being digitised, from course selection to becoming an alumni. We’ll be assessing some of the many digital innovations that are emerging to help students choose, compare, connect and ultimately enrol on their chosen course overseas.

A long-time favourite of study abroad students, Spain is also the top receiving country for Erasmus students. But with world class universities and private business schools, the government is working to increase the country’s profile as a destination for overseas degrees in major student source markets further afield. The growing influence of Spanish as a global language means the country supports a healthy private language sector as well, offering students discreet cultural experiences from Andalusia to the Basque Country. What’s next for this Iberian powerhouse?

The high-end student market
High-net worth individuals have high-net worth children, for whom an average priced study abroad experience is often considered inadequate, relate both agencies and study tour operators. There is an emerging market for luxury language programmes, top-of-the-range travel plans and high-end holidays. We find out more about how study travel operators are catering to a new breed of elite customer.
