Abstract

This presentation discusses the evolution of governance of transnational higher education (TNHE) partnerships and reviews the purposes of these partnerships. By focusing on the case of Sino-foreign educational partnerships, it will outline TNHE as a part of ‘national‘ development strategies. In China, and other countries, TNHE partnerships are seen as an important part of the drive to build ‘World Class Universities’. China’s case shows an increasing orientation towards quality over quantity of partnerships and a growing role for geopolitics in the choice of its universities’ HE partners.
