The British Council and the Commission on Higher Education (CHED) collaborate on the project Joint Development of Niche Programmes through Philippine-United Kingdom Linkages.
The Programme aims to provide capacity and funding support for Philippine higher education institutions (HEIs) to establish international connectivity and engagement through developing transnational education (TNE) partnerships with HEIs in the United Kingdom.
The Programme specifically aims to:
- provide seed funding to Philippine HEIs to develop and implement niche programs with UK HEIs;
- build capacity of Philippine HEIs to raise the importance of incorporating internationalisation goals into their overall vision and mission;
- support research collaboration between Philippine and UK HEIs and
- establish Philippines and UK higher education partnerships.
