Changing the story

THE Live will celebrate UK higher education’s myriad strengths, as well as asking how our world-leading universities can more effectively set the agenda and deal with perceived scepticism about their role and value to society.

This two-day event will be a unique opportunity for delegates from across different specialisms of the higher education ecosystem, academic and administrative, to engage with the nominees from our prestigious THE Awards. The event will provide a platform to scrutinise university leadership from the UK and abroad, debate the facts behind the headlines of how our sector is described in the mainstream media, debate the top stories and significant challenges for the sector and gain exclusive access to advice, practical discussions and case studies with our expert team of journalists, data scientists and award-judges.

Join us and explore how UK universities can renew their sense of purpose with the public and tell their story to the world at a period where the UK’s global reputation is in the middle of significant change.
