Other proposals in the paper outlined government commitments to “encourage and promote” the UK’s online course platform, Futurelearn.

The article, Tougher Inspections for Overseas Growth Strategy, published 1st August, in Times Higher Education, reveals that the new approach will see frequent examinations of institutes deemed to be “more of a hazard”. Speaking at the launch of the strategy, known as the Quality Assurance Agency Regime, David Willetts, Universities and Science Minister, explained the inspection for overseas courses would be performed on a “risk-based” scheme, similar to methods expected to be adopted domestically later in 2013. Other proposals in the paper outlined government commitments to “encourage and promote” the UK’s online course platform, Futurelearn.

Providing students from around the world with a comprehensive removals service, including student airfreight, shipping and storage, the team at Interdean are committed to keeping up to date with the latest changes regarding higher education overseas.

“It’s encouraging to see that more is being done to ensure the quality of higher education for those studying abroad. Students coming to the UK from overseas or vice versa make a serious investment of both time and money so it is important that they receive the best level of education. Our advice to anyone thinking of considering starting course in a different country would be to research their prospective university or college thoroughly and preferably visit beforehand if possible.”
