On 14 November 2018, a policy dialogue was jointly hosted by British Council, International Education Association of South Africa (IEASA) and the Department of Higher Education and Training (DHET) with the goal of exploring the implications of the Draft Policy Framework for the Internationalisation of Higher Education in South Africa for International Provider and Programme Mobility (IPPM).

Mr Colm McGivern, Country Director for the British Council in South Africa, opened the event with reference to the productive partnership between South Africa and the UK in Higher Education (particularly in terms of research collaboration).

Dr Nan Yeld, Sub-Saharan Africa Senior Advisor, Higher Education Development, British Council provided an overview of the programme for the day and commented on some specifics in the draft policy acknowledging in particular the complexity of curriculum in the current South African context and the necessity of this particular policy to link to other relevant national policies.
