Enhancing the student experience

13 Dec 2017, 09:30 - 16:30
20 Tavistock Square 
London
United Kingdom
WC1H 9HQ

​Overview

A national, one-day conference to explore best practice for enhancing the student experience at a time of great change for the sector. The event is an opportunity for professionals with responsibility for the student experience to come together and discuss the key issues affecting the student experience. Delegates will be able to consider the experience of students at their own institution, explore new opportunities and take inspiration from others to ensure that their student experience strategy meets the needs of all students.​

Why are we talking about enhancing the student experience now?

At a time of great change for the sector, it is vital that we do not lose sight of the importance of the student experience. Alongside policy and structural changes such as the embedding of the Teaching Excellence Framework and the introduction of the Office for Students, there are many issues affecting the student experience of individuals and groups of students. Mental health and resilience, student support and academic attainment, and the experiences and wellbeing of LGBT+, ethnic minority and commuter students are aspects to be addressed.​​

Receive a discount when you book your place for this event along with a place at our​ Enhancing the international student experience seminar on 14 December.

We have a range of sponsorship opportunities​ available at this event. Please contact Rachael Firth, Head of Events and Conferences for information. tel: 020 7419 5402; email: rachael.firth@universitiesuk.ac.uk
