    Transnational higher education, in all its varied forms including transnational university/branch campuses, has become a huge business, especially in relation to China. Although this might be generally desirable, the social impacts on local communities are overlooked. This thesis analyzed the social impacts on host communities and local residents created by a transnational university campus, and discussed how a transnational university campus can manage its social impacts, gain approval from local residents, and develop in a socially-friendly way. The expectations of university social responsibility, human rights issues, and the environment, social and governance aspects of transnational universities have been explored. To earn a social licence to operate and grow, universities must understand and respond to the local context, share benefits with local communities, and have effective community engagement.
