Our conferences are taking place in the UK and Australia on World Access to Higher Education Day on 28th November 2018.
UK Conference: Beyond Borders
Host: National Education Opportunities Network (NEON)
Beyond Borders is the UK conference for World Access to Higher Education Day and will bring together, for the first time in the UK, organisations engaged in widening access and equity work from across the world. This is a unique opportunity for delegates to strengthen their existing work by learning about policy, research and practice in widening access work for home and international students from Europe, Asia, Australia and the US.
Speakers include Gillian Golden, Lead Analyst at the OECD, Julie Anderson, Policy Officer at the European Commission, Dr Rebecca Ward, Senior Technical Adviser at IREX, and representatives of access work from a number of European countries.
Our UK and Australian conferences will both be connected by a live link at a certain point in the day for truly global events!
