Going Global 2018
2-4 May 2018
Kuala Lumpur, Malaysia
Global connections, local impact

Going Global is an open forum for leaders in the field of education, where they can discuss issues of international higher and postgraduate education, its challenges and possible solutions.

Since its launch in 2004, the Going Global conference has grown from an event that was held in the UK every two years, to an annual event that takes place not only in the UK but also in major cities around the world. Each year the conference attracts more than 1000 leaders in the field of higher and postgraduate education, as well as other industries related to international education.

We are pleased to invite anyone interested in participating as speakers in the GoingGlobal 2018 conference, which will be held on 2-4 May, 2018 in Kuala Lumpur, Malaysia. The programme of the conference will include plenary and thematic sessions, seminars, panel discussions, poster presentations and an exhibition, which will be a great platform for establishing useful international contacts.

Going Global 2018 will examine the following topics:

  • Against the backdrop of financial, environmental and political challenges how can leaders and policymakers develop a well-understood role for institutions in terms of their social obligation and knowledge economy impact?
  • What are the priorities in ensuring national tertiary education is fit to shape societies of the future, meet the future needs of students, employers and communities?
  • How can global tertiary networks contribute to their achievement?
