Gulf Education Conference & Exhibition 2015

The 5th Gulf Education Conference will take place in Abu Dhabi United Arab Emirates March 2015.

It will be held in the presence of Ministers from a number of countries in the region and Education leaders and senior International Education practitioners. Again it is expected to showcase developments in Education and be a platform where international partnerships can be formed and exchange of best practices and insight can occur. Discussions at the conference will serve to guide the development of Education in institutions and countries in the region.

The theme for last year is ‘ Higher Education 2020’ . Starting from the findings of the Horizon Scanning report commissioned by the Leadership Foundation and the International Unit and authored by the Director and staff of the Observatory on Borderless Higher Education, the conference will unpack the main themes. At the macro level it will explore what Higher Education will be for in 2020 and its role in wealth generation, preparation for employment and social and cultural enrichment. It will look at the international business of Higher Education, the growing threats from other regions and ways of financing for future success.

We are working with our partners and advisory board to set up this year theme.

As in previous years opportunities for networking will be designed into the programme ranging from the conference dinner to individual bookable appointments with people of interest.
