Upcoming events

We run a number of events throughout the year providing timely and valuable information to the higher education sector.

We use our events programme to formulate and affect policy, influence decision makers and raise the profile of key issues in higher education.

Most of our events are held at Woburn House Conference Centre, our suite of events spaces in central London.
