  • 22 March, 2017
  • 8.30am – 10.30am
  • House of Commons, London SW1A 0AA

The challenges facing higher education in 2017 are greater than ever before. There are competitive challenges from abroad, particularly from Asia. The Government is fundamentally changing the regulation of higher education. The UK’s position in the world is changing, underlined by the vote to leave the European Union, and the election of the new US President, which is shifting thinking at home and abroad. How should higher education institutions react? What is the future environment for universities going to look like?
