Founded in 2011, Wonkhe (pronounced wonky) is the home of higher education wonks: those who work in and around universities and anyone interested and engaged in higher education policy, people and politics.

Our mission is to improve policymaking in higher education and provide a platform for the new or previously unheard voices and perspectives in the sector.

Wonkhe is not partisan and not aligned to any particular policies, politics or interests.

Our articles bring together leading debate, analysis and commentary across a range of themes and many different perspectives. Our jobs board provide the community with the latest positions in the sector. Our events bring the sector together to explore higher education themes and drive professional development in HE.

We work with a range of organisations in around higher education that share our goals and support our work.

Wonkhe depends on contributions from across higher education – if you would like to write for us, please read our guide to writing for Wonkhe, and get in touch to pitch an article.

Email Briefings

Our flagship briefing, the Monday Morning HE Briefing keeps the sector up to date on the latest developments in UK HE policy and frequently breaks new stories in the process.

The Wonkhe Daily is an email briefing delivered each workday to professionals in the HE sector who need to stay ahead of the busy HE news and policy landscape.
