About the programme

British Council and the Commission on Higher Education (CHED) are currently implementing the Joint Development of Niche Programme through Philippine-UK Linkages (JDNP). The 2-year project which commenced in August 2016 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. Under the Project, seventeen (17) new, niche UK-Philippines joint or dual postgraduate degrees are being prepared and are ready for offer by academic year 2018 (August/September).

It is in this light that the British Council is looking for a marketing consultant or marketing company that will assist British Council and CHED to develop branding and marketing strategies for the promotion of the Project and the postgraduate degrees which were the outputs from the Project.
