Our International Insights enhancement package helps QAA Members explore issues on quality assuring and enhancing transnational education (TNE) delivery and international partnerships and the experience of international students in the UK.

Tapping into QAA's international expertise, International Insights offers an excellent opportunity to improve practice and knowledge through regular updates and guidance resulting from our work with international quality agencies and partners across the globe.
