The landscape of higher education in East Asia is rapidly changing. The UK-EA Higher Education Partnership Programme (HEP) is aims to create university level collaboration between UK and EA countries to strengthen the UK’s position as a significant partner in the ambitious education reform in East Asia countries, driving the move towards a knowledge economy. The overall Programme aims to provide UK greater access to the higher education market in East Asia, position the UK as preferred education and research partner and strengthen its reputation as world leader in higher education.
The Programme will create a framework for the development of UK-EA higher education partnerships, based on themes such as collaborative teaching programmes, transnational education; research and innovation, student and academic mobility and collaborative commercial consultancy.
The British Council in Malaysia is focusing on the sustainability of Technology Transfer and Research Management in Higher Education Institutions through strategic UK-Malaysia University Partnerships. This project will facilitate partnerships between UK and Malaysian HEIs as well as their industry partners, for the sustainability of Technology Transfer and R&D management.
