Reinventing the university experience for 2020 and beyond

18 September 2020 | 11:55 - 22:15 BST

Thank you to everyone who joined us online for the Student Success Forum.

We were honoured to host delegates from over 100 countries to examine the impact of Covid-19 on university students across the world. Having spent the last six months forecasting the issues of ushering in a new academic year in the age of Covid-19, university and industry leaders spoke on a host of topics that have plagued the higher education sector since March.

Conversations ranged from the equitability of online education to the mental and financial welfare of students. Those in charge of student affairs at universities shared how their institutions executed solutions to mitigate risk and optimise the student experience, such as socially distanced orientation activities. While some speakers were more optimistic than others about the ability to leverage technology for the purposes of recreating the university experience, one thing is clear: the dialogue does not stop here.
