World Access to Higher Education Day 2022

Event Details
Online Webinar
17 November 2022

Become a part of this global day of action campaigning for fair access to, and success within higher education.

World Access to Higher Education Day (WAHED) is a platform to raise global awareness around inequalities in access and success in higher education (HE), and act as a catalyst for international, regional and local action. Due to the success of WAHED this is now an annual event. This year’s WAHED will take place on Thursday 17th of November 2022.

The case for World Access to Higher Education Day is striking. The United Nations Educational, Scientific and Cultural Organization (UNESCO) have recognised the importance of access to HE by making equal access to education, including university, one of its Global Goals for 2030. World Access to Higher Education Day can act as a platform to help make sure this goal is met by:

  • Acting as a catalyst for local, regional and global action
  • Advocating for equitable access to HE across the world to policymakers, governments and higher education providers
  • Providing the platform for the development of a global equitable access network
