World Access to Higher Education Day UK Hub Conference

Beyond Borders is the UK hub conference for the first ever World Access to Higher Education Day, a new day of awareness that aims to bring global attention to inequality in access to higher education and accelerate action. This conference 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. It is crucial that if we are to continue to reduce inequalities in access to higher education in Europe, we connect with those from across the world who are addressing this challenge and share ideas and experiences.

  • Learn about international practice in the delivery of widening access work at leading global universities.
  • Connect with those leading cross-sector widening access partnerships in different countries.
