British Council and CHED drive transnational education initiatives with Philippine and UK universities

MANILA, PHILIPPINES — The British Council has partnered with the Commission on Higher Education (CHED) and Philippine and UK universities to develop transnational education (TNE) programs that leverage faculty expertise and institutional knowledge in the country. Three Filipino educators — Jerome Amoranto of Bicol University (BU), Pam Eleazar of the University of the Philippines-Los Baños (UPLB), and Brian Chiu of University of Santo Tomas (UST) — are leveraging TNE to bring world-class postgraduate education to Philippine shores in their respective industries.

TNE seeks to enhance the quality of higher education in the Philippines by establishing transnational ties with universities around the world. Through TNE, the British Council connects Philippine- and UK-based universities to provide Filipinos a chance to secure a local postgraduate credential and an international qualification — all without needing to study full-time in the UK. TNE also has its imprint on nation-building as the programs align with the goals of the Transnational Higher Education Law, enacted by Philippine lawmakers in 2019.
