“Going Global is an open forum for education world leaders to debate international higher and further education issues and challenges, and to discuss collaborative solutions,” the conference webpage says. 

Its theme is Building Nations and Connecting Cultures: Education Policy, Economic Development and Engagement.

“Going Global 2016 asks if international education is destined to be dominated by competitive drivers for economic growth and international standing; by student fees, skilled graduates and research funding or whether it can also be informed by building partnerships to address collective concerns.”

South Africa will be the first ever African country to host the event. Earlier conferences have been held in the United Kingdom (2015 and 2012), the United States (2014), the United Arab Emirates (2013), and in Hong Kong (2011).

Registration for this event will open on 25 January 2016.
