Welcome to #AUA2018

AUA Annual Conference and Exhibition 2018
The University of Manchester, 26 to 27 March 

Beyond Brexit: embracing uncertainty, defining our purpose, sustaining successful professionals

The extraordinary challenges for higher education, posed by the uncertainties of the political and economic landscape, present complex and unprecedented strategic demands on our institutions. Whatever our own role, the impact of these challenges is being felt by us all, as individual HE professionals, as colleagues, and as those who care passionately about higher education and about students. To reflect the breadth and scope of this complexity and the extraordinary times through which we are living, the theme for the AUA Annual Conference and Exhibition 2018 is; Beyond Brexit: embracing uncertainty, defining our purpose, sustaining successful professionals.

This is your opportunity to join and connect with colleagues across the breadth of the HE Sector, from all corners of the world, to develop your understanding of the risks and opportunities ahead, to share the issues facing you in your own role, and to support one another to meet these challenges together.   

#AUA2018 is a must for all, on an individual and institutional level, offering multiple opportunities to increase your skills, knowledge and resilience, and to equip yourself to navigate these interesting times.
