A New Deal for Students Redesigning the student experience #newdeal15
28 Jan 2015

Pressure is building to redesign elements of the “student experience”.  Tuition fees up to £9000 a year and increasing competition in student recruitment from the UK and internationally, has intensified the focus on evaluating and improving the student experience and finding a new deal.

Student satisfaction and employment outcomes are being analysed right across the institutions.  And a revolution is coming in teaching and learning, with students as active partners making more choices, moving beyond listening, to granting students’ decision making authority, spending power and the opportunity to shape their learning, teaching and wider student experience.

This conference is for academic leaders and institution managers from across higher education planning change and adapting course design, support services, monitoring progress and providing experiences to meet student demand in personal and professional development and employability.
