Quality International Education solutions

Q-intled provides consultancy and advice services internationally to a range of stakeholders, including education providers, quality assurance agencies, regulatory bodies, qualification recognition units, and other policy bodies and think-tanks to support Quality International Education.

The work of Q-intled is based on the firm belief that the internationalisation of tertiary education has tremendous potential to develop the global talent, competencies, and mindsets and the international partnerships required for successful and sustainable relations in our interconnected world.

We believe that this potential can be unlocked only by ensuring that internationalisation activities, in any of their form, meet the expectations of key stakeholders, such as students, regulators, education providers, employers, and our broader communities.

Drawing on extensive international experience in the regulation, quality assurance and recognition of tertiary education and its internationalisation Q-intled provides informed policy and practical advice to support the growth of Quality International Education in different areas, including, but not only:

·        International student mobility and the student experience

·        Transnational Education and international partnerships

·        Quality assurance and international regulatory frameworks

·        New developments and opportunities in international education

At Q-intled we believe in the transformational potential of education, in its power to improve peoples' life and as a crucial means to find shared solutions for the challenges facing our increasingly interconnected societies. We believe in the power of internationalisation to widen access to quality education, and to inform the sense of global citizenship required for sustainable and peaceful processes of globalisation.
