Event Summary

Join  us online for Westminster Insight’s annual University Admissions Digital Conference. Unpick the learnings from 2022-23 and explore how admissions will work for the upcoming cycle with the ongoing challenges posed by the Covid-19 pandemic. What are the implications of Covid-19 exam disruption on admissions?  Our expert speakers will discuss how the admissions system can be revised to improve the prospects of underrepresented applicants.

Moving to a post qualification admissions model has been currently shelved by the DfE, but that does not mean that there is no room for improvement to the system or potential for reforms in the future. What are the options for improving access, fairness, and transparency in admissions?

Join live discussions about how the admissions process can be improved to widen participation in higher education to disadvantaged groups and mature students. Discuss the international admissions landscape and how to overcome challenges for foreign students applying to study in the UK.

Share ideas and network with peers from across higher education, further education, and schools.
