BUTEX brings together universities, colleges and other HE institutions across the UK that have a shared interest in learning abroad.
Its aims include developing expertise and influence the future of international education.
We are very pleased to announce that an article in the next edition of EAIE Forum magazine will also discuss ‘Transnational Dialogues on Disability’.

The first session, Diversifying summer programming: a game changer in internationalisation, (9:30am to 10:30am) will discuss innovative uses of summer schools as ways to engage with new audiences and to deepen international partnerships. Our director, Dr Sarah Williamson, will share the podium with Eva Janssen from Vrije Universiteit Amsterdam and Guri Vestad from Oslo. Dr Williamson will debate how diversifying the portfolios of summer programmes can reach new levels of internationalisation.
Dr Williamson and Dr Alexander Heinz, Lead of King’s Summer Education Programme, will then also be speaking at the poster session; Changing lives: strategies for building inclusive summer schools (11:00-12:30).
