AoC provides Covid-19 guidance for college international work within our Covid resource hub

UK colleges work with countries all over the world to deliver education and training. Colleges welcome international students to their campuses, offer summer schools and provide specialist training and consultancy to international education partners. The Association of Colleges supports colleges with the development of their international activity by working closely with organisations such as the Department for International Trade, the British Council and UKCISA. We operate a series of network meetings for our members and represent college international interests on committees with UK Government departments such as the Home Office. We are always pleased to help organisations who are looking to partner with colleges.

Each year we publish a report on international activity in colleges. You can read the 2019 report here
