The steady increase in joint programmes and qualifications offered by UK and French universities is a cause for celebration. But language constraints, financial pressures and political uncertainty present real obstacles to continued expansion. How are these to be overcome? And how can higher education institutions on either side of the Channel help each other to realise the enormous potential of Franco-British partnerships?Franco-British Academic Partnerships: The Next Chapter is a valuable opportunity not only to take stock of intensifying bilateral cooperation in the higher education sector, but also to share experience and best practice, and, hopefully, to identify some new initiatives and areas for collaboration.Boasting contributions from leading politicians and higher education managers, alongside essays from distinguished international scholars, the book will be required reading for academics and university leaders.
