Conferences

Advance HE has a strong programme of conferences throughout the year for all engaged in HE, whether leaders, practitioners or Governors, supporting institutions at all levels. The benefits of attending are significant for the participants, their teams and institutions.

Attending an Advance HE conference gives you the opportunity to hear about the latest developments in policy and practice from global leaders, from both within and beyond the HE sector. Each offers an opportunity to gain insights from the work of others, as well as solutions and actions for your own institution. Posters, workshops, presentations and Ignite sessions allow you to showcase the innovative work taking place at your institution to peers internationally, increasing the global reach of staff publishing and presenting their work.
