This timely conference will debate the big issues facing universities and higher education with a focus on where the decisions of today will take us tomorrow.
With a limit on participants and organised around six core sessions over two days, involving leading thinkers and actors from in and outside the sector, this will be a controversial, intensive and interactive forum. The themes are students, staff, money, regulation, the public intellectual and the international context. The elephant in the room – Is the university as we know it dead?
