These two days are really about celebrating success. It’s about really stepping back and saying: 'this is what I’ve achieved, this is what I can achieve' and that’s really, really important to do that. Coming to university isn’t just about sitting in a classroom, it isn’t just about the studying; it’s about developing yourself holistically. It’s about taking up every opportunity that comes your way, because that way you can develop skills and those skills will stay with you for the rest of your life.
Jane Harrington, Vice Chancellor, Student Conference opening address, 9 June 2021
On a wider scale, where change is prevalent and where every action affects the wider ecology of business, study and the planet, how can we ensure we are taking the right steps for the good of all?
This is a conference 'for students, by students'. You can contribute to the conference in three categories, as a group or individual. Presentations can take place live online, or they can be pre-prepared or recorded.
Book your place at the Student Conference 2022 and join in the conversations about what the future looks like and how you can make a difference.
Come and join in the conversations about what the future holds for students like you. Aside from the immediate need to develop skills for the future, there are wider implications. Our collective digital behaviours can potentially change the world for the better in terms of climate change, poverty and disease.
