The 2014 WFCP World Congress, the eighth congress, hosted by the China Education Association for International Exchange will take place at the China Conference Centre in Beijing, China, from October 24th-26th, 2014. The conference is organised in conjunction with the China Annual Conference for International Education. The WFCP conference will bring together leaders of the applied higher education system to discuss the latest trends, topics and development in this sector.

The 2012 WFCP World Congress was successfully held in Halifax. It provided WFCP’s members and delegates from all over the world with the opportunity to present the latest trends in the higher applied education sector, showcase the research, ideas and innovation that are strengthening applied education, present the realities of our sector in a global context, and bond with colleagues and partners who share an interest in the college and polytechnics sector.
