‘Internationalisation of Tertiary Education’


I launched the International Conference on ‘Internationalisation of Tertiary Education’, organised by the Tertiary Education Commission (TEC) held at Le Meridien Hotel, Pte aux Piments. I would like to confirm the government’s commitment to create a broad and inclusive tertiary education system, and I expect that the outcome of the conference will guide us in taking future decisions for the Tertiary Education Sector and will act as a reference point for the Government’s policy making and relationship with the sector.
