Transnational education (TNE) is education delivered in a country other than the country in which the awarding institution is based. It can be delivered through distance learning, local partnerships with another organisation or through a UK institution’s own campus in another country. TNE offers students the chance to access UK degrees closer to where they are based.


In March 2021, we published a new method for the enhancement of the quality of UK transnational education: The Quality Evaluation and Enhancement of UK Transnational Higher Education Provision (QE-TNE).

More information about QE-TNE, as well as reports from previous reviews of UK TNE, can be found in our International section.
