Advance HE Member Benefits 2021-22

Designed to enable institutional, staff and student success, Advance HE membership packages give you access to world-leading services, supporting you reach your institutional goals

Our conversations with you and member-led strategic advisory groups have confirmed your wish for us to target our support in sustainability, structural inequality and hybrid operating models. You have asked us to focus on helping you address these priorities:

  • helping to rethink online pedagogy and factors impacting on student success

  • creating and sustaining an inclusive institution

  • transitions, retention and progression for the ‘Covid generation’

  • maintaining and nurturing organisational wellbeing

  • developing institutions and staff capability for a post-Covid environment.

In large part, we will bring this focus to life through our ‘Connect Benefit Series’ which is designed to bring members together to work with us in co-creating and sharing innovative solutions to contemporary challenges.

A full outline of the 2021-22 member benefits package can be found below*.
