With landmark reforms to admissions
on the horizon, and the pandemic still causing disruption to education
and exams, Westminster Insight’s University Admissions Digital Conference
will explore how to prepare for the forthcoming 2022-23 admissions cycle.
Our conference is ideally timed for spring to assess the impact the pandemic had on 2021-22 admission numbers
and how admissions will work for the upcoming cycle
with the ongoing challenges posed by Covid-19.
You will explore the practical challenges and implications of implementing different post qualifications admissions models posed by the wide-ranging reviews of the admissions system. Best practice will be shared from established international post qualification systems.
Join live discussions about how the admissions process can be improved to widen participation
in higher education to disadvantaged groups, mature students
and foreign students
applying to study in the UK.
Put your questions to our expert speakers and share ideas with peers from across higher education, further education, and schools
to address how the overall admissions system
can be revamped to ensure transparency, fairness and improve the prospects of underrepresented applicants.
