The International Research and Researchers’ Network is intended to support the Society’s aim to maintain a prominent place and sustain a leading role within an increasingly global research community.

The network’s activities are centred around:

  • engaging with overseas-based researchers of higher education, and higher education policy makers and practitioners;
  • supporting UK-based researchers and scholars of higher education in international (or non-UK) contexts;
  • promoting and disseminating research into higher education that is undertaken in, or has implications for, international (or non-UK) contexts;
  • promoting and encouraging the incorporation of consideration of international contexts within research into higher education.


The IRR network will be of particular interest to those who:

  • are interested in research and scholarship of higher education in international, or non-UK, contexts;
  • are interested in comparative higher education research;
  • are overseas-based researchers or scholars of higher education;
  • are overseas-based higher education policy makers or practitioners.


The SRHE International Research and Researchers’ Network convenes events during the year to promote dialogue and information exchange and create and support a new network of researchers.
