Going Global is an annual conference hosted by the British Council, offering an open forum for global leaders of international education to discuss issues facing the international education community.
Since its inception in 2004, Going Global has grown from an annual event in the UK to an event travelling the globe. Each year it attracts over 1,000 registered delegates from across the tertiary (further and higher) education sectors and a variety of other industries with perspectives on international education.
The conferences consist of a series of sessions based around the year's chosen themes. Sessions take the form of panel debates, multi-presentation sessions and poster presentations. The event provides the platform for networking. Several sponsored or private events take place around the conferences, which has become a fixture of the global education calendar.
