Fwd: Student Experience Conference 2019: Bookings now open!


Student Experience Conference 2019: Bookings now open! 


How can higher education providers support student and graduate success? 

We are pleased to announce that registration for the Student Experience Conference, to be held on the 4 November 2019 at the University of Derby Enterprise Centre, is now open. 


The conference themes are: 

·       Ensuring success for a diverse student body 

·       Supporting success over the student journey 

·       Communicating for success 


Baasit Siddiqui - Derby Alumni, educational speaker and regular resident on award-winning show Gogglebox, will open the conference with a keynote address. We will then invite delegates to attend a variety of workshops and presentations based on supporting student and graduate success.    


The finalised agenda will follow, but we expect a varied programme including content on: 

·       Partnership working with students 

·       Embedding co-creation in communication 

·       Effective approaches to transition 

·       Widening participation across the student journey 

·       Approaches to eliminate attainment gaps  


To embed our ethos of students as partners all presentations will be co-delivered (or exclusively delivered) by students.   


Take advantage of the early bird cost of £75 per delegate until 14 July: after this date, the normal delegate price will be £100.  You can book your place here.    


For more information please contact us at We'll be updating Twitter as we prepare for the conference using #SEConf2019 so keep an eye out for exciting updates.  


We hope to see you all at the conference!
