The use of transnational education (TNE) is becoming increasingly popular around the world. Such forms of education offer international students with degrees from different countries while remaining in their home country. Frequently, universities offer degrees through branch campuses or strategic partnerships to support such international students. Given their proliferation, it is important to consider what some of the most effective methods in ensuring their smooth operation are. This research considered the reflective observations of one such TNE to provide some insights into best practices for other such TNE programmes. One of the chief recommendations is the need for flexibility in course material and delivery styles, as well as looking to exploit the opportunities offered by TNE through initiatives such as collaborative international teaching sessions.
