Going Global 2024




This is the British Council's flagship higher education event, and will be taking place in Africa, for the first time, in late 2024. The event will be focused on the Africa region (including North Africa) and is expected to attract a significant number of ministers from across the continent.  The event will act as a focal point for activity for HMG and sector representatives and will demonstrate the strength of the UK higher education offer to a predominantly African audience, and help to consolidate our relationships with African education Ministries.

Conference theme:
