Society for College and University Planning (SCUP)'s insight:
"We set out to investigate the impacts of TNE on the host country, both positive and negative. One of the most striking findings in the study is that, overall, respondents did not believe that the negative features or potential risks of TNE were important or applicable, the exception being the high cost of TNE programmes compared with local programmes. What has come out is that survey respondents believe that TNE is providing increased access to higher education for local students and contributing to improvement of the overall quality of higher education provision. For students, the number-one rationale driving them to enroll in TNE is to improve professional skills for career development, and 61 per cent of respondents believed that studying a TNE programme would increase their earning potential relative to studying a local programme. The research also provides evidence that TNE students understand the importance of awareness and knowledge about international issues and events and they believe that TNE can help them gain this international understanding."
