Legal Support on International HE Projects

A growing number of UK HEIs are engaging in international projects, including the establishment of overseas campuses, collaborations with overseas education institutions or projects that cater specifically for the needs of international students in the UK.

We have extensive international experience and strong trusted relationships with law firms across the world who have expert knowledge of the education sector.  Our appointment to the NWUPC's Global Mobility Framework Panel is testament to our expertise in international projects.
