Term Definition
transnational education

This refers to educational provision from one country being offered in another. It can take the form of taught programmes, or blended, or online. It is sometimes abbreviated as TNE. Some are uneasy with one way in which it has evolved, whereby privileged Western universities and colleges make profits from courses run on their behalf in developing or poorer nations, rather than having these same states build indigenous educational capacity.
