Catherine West MP (Labour) asked the Secretary of State for International Trade, what steps his Department is taking to support UK higher education exports.
Answered on 6 February 2018 by Graham Stuart, Parliamentary Under-Secretary (Department for International Trade):
The Department for International Trade supports the international aspirations of the Higher Education sector through its Education team in a range of ways, including Government to Government engagement and support to Trade Missions. The team has recently helped, amongst others, the University of Birmingham in its plan to open a campus in Dubai. The UK Higher Education sector will also be a focus in the GREAT Festival of Innovation, to be held in Hong Kong in March.
The recently formed DIT Education Sector Advisory Group brings together relevant sector partners, including Universities UK and Independent Higher Education, to co-ordinate efforts to boost education exports.
