Improving student retention 2018

20 Tavistock Square 
London
United Kingdom
WC1H 9HQ

​Overview

This one-day conference will give delegates a full understanding of the policy landscape surrounding retention, as well as the knowledge you need to approach the challenge of student retention in your own institution.​

Delegates with strategic responsibility for student retention will hear from policy makers, experts in retention, and a range of best practice case studies.​

Why are we talking about student retention now?

The focus on student retention has been sharpened over the last 18 months by the changes to the higher education landscape.

The removal of student number caps, the discussion around the metrics that will feed into the Teaching Excellence Framework (TEF) and the changes to the architecture of the sector has brought student retention to the top of institutions’ agendas.

This conference will be a unique opportunity to come together with colleagues and experts, receive the most up to date policy information, and discuss best practice for student retention in your institution.


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