​​​In 2014, we conducted a Review of Transnational Education (TNE) in the Caribbean. This review looked at UK universities that deliver distance learning online and in partnership with a local support centre, as well as other partnership arrangements where a UK university is the awarding institution. The findings of the review are published as quality assurance reports on six individual partnerships, case studies on four UK institutions, and an overview report.

Case studies: Managing large-scale TNE delivered by distance learning


Following its review of TNE in the Caribbean in 2014, we have compiled a set of four case studies, exploring the different approaches taken by four UK institutions to developing and managing large-scale TNE, delivered by distance learning. Each case study provides an account of the institution’s general TNE model as well as Caribbean-specific provision.


The case studies focus on the following institutions:

  • Heriot-Watt University
  • Oxford Brookes University and the Association of Chartered Certified Accountants
  • University of Liverpool and Laureate Online
  • University of London International Programmes
