Through our work with over 10,000 education policy-makers and leaders worldwide, we raise the profile of UK higher education in the US and beyond.

The British Council Higher Education Series created opportunities to increase partnerships and collaborations between North and South American institutions and those in the UK.

This two-year series of one-day conversational conferences addressed pressing questions in higher education today, including transnational education, institutional partnerships, student mobility, research collaboration and the role of higher education in economic development and employment, among others listed below.

The series was designed primarily for an influential audience of senior-level representatives from a wide range of North and South American universities, foundations, corporations and local government agencies, but we welcomed senior-level UK university representatives to attend as well.

From 2013 to 2014 the series expanded beyond the United States with events in the following locations, leading up to the British Council’s Going Global conference in Miami in April 2014:

  • US
  • Canada
  • Brazil
  • Mexico
  • Colombia
