Global Connect - international partnerships

Ecctis has excellent relationships with a wide range of organisations worldwide: universities and specialist institutions; colleges; associations and networks of educational institutions; national agencies and authorities; awarding bodies; private sector businesses; government ministries.

These connections mean we may be able to help you forge new institutional partnerships, to achieve new international links, sharing of knowledge and best practice, staff and student exchanges, and articulation and progression arrangements to help develop your student recruitment.

Our contacts in the ministries and our national-level work in some countries and regions put us in a position to advise on regulatory and recognition issues, if you are planning new joint programmes or TNE.

We are increasingly involved in the creation of informational content for overseas markets - tailored communications, training, events - and there are opportunities to be involved in this, perhaps as a contributor of specialist knowledge. This may be of interest if you are seeking to network or to raise your profile in particular regions or sectors.

At the moment, Ecctis is particularly busy in China, working with vocational colleges across the country to support their internationalisation programmes. Many of these colleges are actively seeking new international links and articulation agreements with institutions in the UK and other Western countries.

Ecctis is increasing its presence in India, with outreach to institutions seeking to internationalise and to key organisations such as sector skills councils.

Ecctis is experienced and active in the Middle East, with a successful track record and continuing work at national level, developing qualification frameworks and building capacity in qualification and skills recognition. We are well placed to advise on the educational landscape in the region.

We may be able to help you build new international links and collaborations. For an informal discussion to explore possibilities, email [email protected]
