This year has seen university life disrupted in ways previously unthinkable. The impact of Covid-19 continues to reverberate across the academy, affecting staff and students, research and teaching, and, increasingly, the relationships between town and gown.
To help us forge forward to address these enormous challenges, THE is convening a day of must-attend virtual discussions for university stakeholders. Together, we will collectively take stock and draw up a vision for UK higher education in 2021 and beyond.
Leading and managing a university through Covid
The impact of Black Lives Matter on equality, diversity and inclusion at UK universities
Getting admissions right in 2021
The future of international student mobility
Maintaining excellence in student experience during Covid
Moving online teaching from a short-term fix to a long-term solution
Join us for this vital gathering for all who care about the future of UK universities, which will close with positivity – the reveal and celebration of winners of the THE Awards 2020.
The event will be facilitated by our new immersive virtual events platform. Our online environment enables you to connect with delegates from around the world, access essential content and create new partnerships through this time of global separation.
