This November, the British Council will conduct a series of roadshows around the country and possibly across the ASEAN region to promote the postgraduate transnational education (TNE) programmes developed through the Joint Development of Niche Programme (JDNP) project co-funded with the Commission on Higher Education. The promotional campaign and roadshow dubbed as “UK-PH Now” is designed to combine the education fair and briefing session formats for the programme promotions with the hope of feigning interest among Filipino and international postgraduate students.

UK-PH Now will be open to higher education institutions under the project with TNE degrees open by December 2018, January 2019 and the next 2019 semester. Central Luzon State University will be hosting one of the first information sessions on 12 November followed by the second leg scheduled on 26 November at the Polytechnic University of the Philippines in Manila. The first of Regional roadshows will be hosted by Silliman University in Dumaguete City on 28 November.

The British Council will also be participating in local education events hosted by other organisations such as the University of Santo Tomas’ second Public Health Symposium on 16 November.
