Fwd: 4th UK Advising and Tutoring Annual Conference - Call for Proposals


UKAT Annual Conference 2019 – Call for Proposals

Transition, Persistence and Resilience: Academic Advising for Success.


11th & 12th April at Plymouth University United Kingdom.

UKAT are excited to offer a 4th annual conference that will provide an opportunity to explore new research, innovative practice and contemporary discussion on student support through advising and tutoring. We recognise that for many students the barriers to success (difficulty transitioning; lack of confidence; time and resource poverty) can outweigh the wealth of opportunities and advantages afforded by university experience. Students' development of persistence and resilience can be enhanced by a support network of peers, professional support staff, personal tutors and academic advisors and this conference will bring together members of these groups to share good practice, skills and knowledge.


The conference themes will focus specifically on how student support systems impact on the student experience. Abstracts relating to these areas are welcomed to cultivate student centred discussions within academic advising and tutoring, and should be themed under one of the following;


  • Transitioning students: support/activities and evaluation.
  • Developing Persistence
  • Building student Resilience
  • Academic Advising for Success

A sponsorship prize will be awarded for the best poster at the conference.


The closing date for submission of proposals is 31 October 2018
