The Global Wales programme provides a strategic, collaborative approach to international higher education and further education in Wales.


The programme is a partnership between Universities Wales, ColegauCymru, Welsh Government, British Council Wales, and the Higher Education Funding Council for Wales (HEFCW).

Global Wales brings together universities and colleges with Global Wales partner organisations behind a single strategy to increase international profile, recruitment, and partnership opportunities for universities and colleges for the benefit of students, institutions and Wales as a nation. 

From 2022, Global Wales is funded through Taith - an ambitious international learning exchange programme announced by Welsh Government in 2021 and launched in early 2022.
