View from Sir Patrick Stewart, Going Global 2012

Sir Patrick Stewart"As Chancellor of the University of Huddersfield I was delighted to be involved in the 2012 Going Global conference. You might ask what is my connection to Huddersfield? Well, it is, effectively, my home town university, for I was born and raised just a few miles away. I accepted the position on the proviso that I could be a hands-on Chancellor, spending time at the University, and meeting the students. The global nature of the University has made a deep impression on me and I enjoy meeting young people from all over the world who are determined to fulfil their full potential." .......Read more

Going Global Conference

Going Global is a series of international educational conferences hosted by the British Council, offering an open forum for policy makers and practitioners from around the world to discuss issues facing the international education community. Since its inception in 2004, 'Going Global' has grown from a bi-annual event in the UK to an annual event travelling the globe. In this time the conference has become a central event in the global education calendar, attracting high level delegates from across the further and higher education sectors and a variety of other industries with perspectives on international education.

Book Testimonials

"Writing a paper for Going Global 2012 gave me the opportunity to present my views on rethinking internationalisation of higher education as presented at the Going Global conference 2012 in London in a more elaborated way and reach a broader audience for these views. I hope that this paper will contribute to the further debate about international education and that this will be relected in future Going Global publications.   Professor Hans de Wit, Professor of Internationalisation of Higher Education, Centre for Applied Research in Economics and Management, Amsterdam University of Applied Sciences, Netherlands

"Having an idea that you feel might significantly change the global landscape of education and help shape the future of a creatively progressive world is futile unless you find a suitable platform to communicate your vision, and therefore we are grateful that the British Council provides such precious opportunities..... We hope that this meticulously edited publication will truly Go Global and carry with it a wealth of ideas ready to inform, excite, provoke and delight a wide audience of those in a position to indeed instigate change."    Jasmina Nikolic & Jelena Gledic, University of Belgrade 

"Pakistan has made a phenomenal growth in its higher education sector, which is focusing on building a knowledge economy through research and innovation. In the last few years, there has been a significant increase in accessibility to higher education, considerable improvement in quality, and its research has grown amongst the highest in the developing world. Pakistan's universities are now being ranked among the best in Asia and the World. The secret of this success in building winning formulas for knowledge economy is being shared in the paper."     Javaid R. Laghari, PhD, Chairperson, Higher Education Commission

"This book will be of great value to the international higher education community, drawing together articles from authors with a broad range of experiences and viewpoints. Reflecting on the range of approaches found in this publication will help sector leaders and policy-makers take a fresh look at international education, stimulating new ways of thinking about how we respond to the rapidly evolving challenges and opportunities we face across the sector."     Professor Wendy Purcell, Vice-Chancellor and Chief Executive, Plymouth University
