Higher education can be a difficult place to navigate as a professional, whether you’re early in your career, joining the sector from a different industry, moving institutions, a lay governor, taking on a new role with different responsibilities or developing your partnerships with universities.

At Making sense of higher education, Team Wonkhe and experts from across the sector will be on hand to help you navigate through our crash course in higher education policy, politics, and people.

We’ll take you on a tour through the histories, cultures, and external pressures shaping what universities are doing – and connect you to plenty of allies and sources of insight to help make sense of it all and inform the decisions you’re making in your professional role.

Because among all the noise of Westminster and devolved governments, regulatory requirements, media controversy, sector comings and goings, and internal battles, is a lively, fascinating and never-ending debate about the social purposes higher education serves in the contemporary UK.

And we believe that everyone working in and around higher education, whatever your role, seniority, or background, should have the opportunity to engage in and shape that conversation.

A full agenda will be published soon and sessions will include:

  • The history of higher education
  • Quality, pedagogy, and teaching excellence
  • The student movement and student voice
  • The data we use and why
  • Access and admissions
  • Technology in higher education
  • Research and innovation
  • Navigating university culture and leadership
  • Funding, finance and competition
  • Thinking like a policymaker
  • Careers in higher education
  • Policy narratives and the future of UK universities
