Plans for a global higher education access consortium

Plans are afoot to launch a Global Higher Education Access and Diversity Consortium next year, bringing together universities and civil society groups from around the world to advocate, show leadership and share best practice around these globally pertinent issues.

Our take

Global Education for All

There is a wide disparity in access to education and educational resources around the world. As technology makes the world a smaller place to live and share, educational institutions are taking note. What benefits could worldwide collaboration bring?

The ability to connect across continents means that even the poorest areas of the world have the potential to gain access to rich resources. This World Access to Higher Education Day is an attempt to bring attention to the issue and explore ways that collaboration could bring better educational opportunities to developing areas around the globe.
