Visit support for Strategic and Global Members

Advance HE Strategic and Global Members are currently entitled to developmental support through a 3 day in person visit, or equivalent remote support, each membership year. A large amount of this support is already delivered remotely, as many institutions find that the option to have incremental support over a longer period, particularly for accreditation, can be beneficial. Advance HE has also successfully delivered online support for areas such as Fellowship writing, mentoring and standardisation training.

For the foreseeable future, all of this support will be delivered remotely. If the current situation with covid-19 means that it is not possible for you to take advantage of this support during the membership year, please contact us to discuss this and we will do our best to meet your needs. Contact Ian Hall, Head of Membership (International), with any questions.
