Event description

Description

Introduction:

  • How might we better understand the needs and expectations of students?

  • How are institutions responding and which ones are doing this well?

Students, both international and from the UK, pay considerable sums of money to attend universities and understandably they look for high quality support.

This year’s CEC Autumn Conference focuses on students and the role of institutions - in terms of support for learning and teaching, research, living experiences and also preparation for future employment. The starting point for our conference is the students: we want to listen to them, to understand better their ever-evolving expectations and learn of experiences to date.

We will explore some best practice examples from universities and also consider how research can serve to highlight where gaps might be.

Confirmed speakers include:

  • Will Archer, founder and previously CEO of i-graduate international insight

  • Phil Baty, Global Rankings Editor, Times Higher Education

  • Dr Neil Kemp OBE, CEC Board member

  • Dr Mary Stiasny OBE, Pro-Vice Chancellor, University of London

  • Sonny Leong CBE, CEO of the Civil Service College and Chair CEC

  • Dr David Pilsbury, Deputy Vice-Chancellor, Coventry University

  • Dominic Scott OBE, CEO, UKCISA

  • Yinbo Yu, NUS International Officer

Other invited speakers include:

  • Rt Hon Liam Byrne MP, Shadow Minister (Digital Economy, Culture, Media and Sport)

  • Professor Mary Stuart, Vice Chancellor, University of Lincoln

  • Presidents University Student Unions.

While there will be some specific considerations relating to international students (particularly from Commonwealth countries) the issues will have strong relevance for all students, and at all levels of study.

Who will this benefit?

Students (international, Commonwealth, Europe and the UK); University senior managers; International teams in institutions; Embassies and High Commission staff; and all organisations with interests in students and student support.

Delegate fees

Students: £25 | CEC Members: £30 | Other delegates: £50

Note: the fee covers the costs of lunch and refreshments at the University of London venue.
