Developing International Partnerships

Share this page

Britain’s forthcoming departure from the EU, an ever more volatile international market, and an increasingly uncertain funding picture within the UK, combine to focus UK HE institutions’ attention on international partnerships.

A university, seeking to manage the development of international partnerships, asked us to benchmark three relevant areas:

  • Collection, recording and use of management information about international academic networks, contacts and partnerships (any teaching, research and enterprise/other activity that does not constitute formal collaborative provision directly covered by academic QA processes)
  • Checks of potential international partnerships and activity against strategy
  • How incoming enquiries about possible new international partnerships are handled.

This note summarises our findings and the key observations we made.
