Asia-Europe Foundation (ASEF) and World Access to Higher Education Day (WAHED) ‘Access and equity in higher education’ capacity building course

The aim of this training is to equip managers in higher education institutions in Europe and Asia to be able to advance equitable access and success in their institutions. Participants will complete the training with a key combination of practical solutions they can implement in their institutions and new networks which can strengthen their equity work.

The training will:

  • increase participants’ understanding of the evidence and theory where access, success and participation in higher education are concerned and get familiar with global institutional practice in these fields
  • assist participants to develop action plans which they can implement in their home institution to improve access and success in higher education for disadvantaged groups
  • build an Asia-Europe community of managers and practitioners who can achieve a step change in equitable access to higher education by 2030.

This training would be particularly valuable for managers and administrators in higher education institutions in charge of inclusion, equity or admission policies.

Deadline for applications is Monday 16 September 2019.
