Programme outline:

This conference will examine how UK higher education institutions and the private sector can work in partnership with Commonwealth (and other) countries and their institutions to devise solutions to the dilemma that the increasing demand for higher education places on institutions and governments, wherever they might be located.
What are the dilemmas and challenges, risks and opportunities to international co-operation of mobilising new sources of funding and approaches for the expansion and distribution of higher education opportunities across the Commonwealth and other countries? 
Commonwealth governments and universities are looking at non government sources of investment and partnership to meet student demand, expand the academy, technology and infrastructure development.

Speakers include:

Rt Hon Bill Rammell, Vice-Chancellor,  University of Bedfordshire; former UK Education and Foreign Office Minister

Rt Hon Charles Clarke, Former UK Secretary of State for Education

Professor Pauline Rose, Professor, International Education, University of  Cambridge; former Director, Unesco Global Monitoring

•    Private capital and funding for universities, including new models of learning and teaching
•    Private capital, partnering for outsourcing or leasing  back office services,  ICT,  building, accommodation
