The Higher Education Summit 2009
02 Feb 2009
Choices Beyond 2010. Held at QEII Conference Centre, London

The Higher Education sector is becoming more stratified, as funding changes increasingly mean that no institution can deliver to all students. Institutions must choose their future market segment and unique University Selling Points. Timed at the beginning of an important year, which includes the review of student finance and fees, the Summit gave a comprehensive update on the latest policy issues, from the incoming Research Excellence Framework to the next steps after the DIUS commissioned Higher Education reviews. The Summit provided an opportunity to hear from leading national and international commentators on the key policy and strategic challenges facing Higher Education institutions.
