The conference for students, delivered by students

Because your tomorrow starts today

The pandemic brought about dramatic change to our lives and everywhere communities scrambled to adjust to tough impositions. In Higher Education, we have had to adapt to radically different ways of teaching and learning that have changed our landscape forever. Today, as we emerge into a digitally disrupted world with newly developed skills for working and engaging online, we ask the following questions:

  • What digital skills and experiences will help me thrive and succeed?
  • How have jobs changed and what are employers looking for?
  • How can I remain relevant in a digitally transformed world?
  • How can I use my skills to contribute positively to the wider world?

The Student Conference will help address these questions and more. It will provide a platform for students to discuss ideas and share experiences.

Book your place at the Student Conference and join in the conversations about what the future looks like and how you can make a difference.

Why attend the conference?

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. 

As a conference attendee, you can look forward to the following benefits:

  • Welcome Pack
  • Certificate of attendance
  • Greenwich Employability Points
  • Expand your LinkedIn network
  • Networking opportunities
  • A chance to share your unique student experiences and insights
