Is going to university worth the investment? This question has been under intense scrutiny from the public and politicians, with the Augar review focusing on issues around value. It is more important than ever that the sector meets the needs of different stakeholders – be it prospective students, students, graduates, government or employers – and demonstrates the value it delivers.
There are more benefits that come from going to university than purely earnings. There is an urgent need for the sector to look at how we communicate the value we deliver to different audiences. During the day we will explore how we look beyond graduate earnings to measure value, and what the greater benefits of a university education are to students, society and the economy.
During this event we will cover topics such as the value of skills to the economy, how universities support and enhance their local areas, and the broader benefits to students from their time spent at university. Delegates will have the opportunity to hear from expert speakers from across the sector, graduate employers, as well as exploring the broader political context, and what we expect to happen next.
The event will be chaired by Professor Dame Janet Beer, Vice-Chancellor of the University of Liverpool, and chair of the UUK working group on the value of higher education.
This conference is open to all with an interest in this topic, however will be particularly useful for staff who have responsibility for or play a part in the following areas:
