Demand for transnational education programmes has remained relatively steady over the years, but with the current pandemic circumstances, significant changes in student numbers can be seen in the transnational education sector. This paper explores the past, present and future direction of the transnational education sector and investigates and identifies the impacts of the pandemic on the transnational education sector. We identify the challenges of a post-pandemic era, which has resulted in long-term changes to the global higher education landscape. Transnational Education engagement can benefit students, overseas partners, and UK universities, and it is critical to investigate trends and challenges to ensure that transnational academic program partners can adapt to the environment and reap the benefits. It highlights students pursuing a transnational education programme as a more sustainable approach to obtaining an international degree compared to leaving their home country for a period of higher education abroad.
