During 2015, we undertook a review of UK TNE in Greece and Cyprus. The purposes of the review were to safeguard the reputation of UK higher education in these countries and elsewhere by demonstrating a robust, independent approach to its quality assurance, and, by doing so, to support the further growth of high-quality UK provision internationally.


Following an initial scoping exercise, we selected seven institutions for review whose provision represented the range of UK TNE on offer in Greece and Cyprus. The findings are published as quality assurance reports on seven individual partnerships, two case studies documents, and an overview report.
