Future HE Professionals

The AUA has a heritage of almost 60 years connecting and developing higher education professionals in support of the UK higher education sector. 

Looking ahead to the next phase in our development, the AUA is embarking on an inclusive and collaborative research project ‘Future HE Professionals’.

Drawing on the depth of our existing connections with HE professional services, we want to better understand the needs of our community into the future.

The Future HE Professionals project aims to:

  • Understand how professional services roles are developing in the context of a rapidly changing HE sector
  • Identify future development needs – the skills and attributes to equip professional services for the changing future of HE
  • Support the continued success of UK higher education.

The project will include background research, a major ‘Future HE professionals’ survey, and in-depth stakeholder engagement.

We invite you to join us in this collaborative project to better equip higher education professionals to support the future success of UK HE. To express your interest, email Kathy Murray, Director of Operations.

More information will be published soon and a survey will be live in early 2020.
