The Higher Education and Research Act (2017): What it means for your institution, is a national one-day conference to give you the opportunity to examine the key institutional and operational aspects of the Higher Education and Research Act, to consider where we are, and to discuss what happens next. Organised by Universities UK, the day will explore the implications for your institution and will give you the insight and intelligence you need to plan for the changes.
On the 27 April 2017, the Higher Education and Research Bill received Royal Assent and became an Act.
The Act ‘…represents the most important legislation for the sector in 25 years’ (The Viscount Younger of Leckie, Lords Spokesperson (Department for Education) (Higher Education)).
The implications of the Higher Education and Research Act are far reaching, with the impact being felt throughout all parts of the higher education sector. Institutions must be prepared for the changing architecture and ensure that they will be fit for the new landscape.
Join fellow higher education professionals and leading policy experts on 10 October 2017 to receive the most up to date briefing on the critical issues in the Act, and discuss the implications for your institution.
