3rd International Enhancement in Higher Education Conference

Inspiring excellence - transforming the student experience

6-8 June 2017 - Radisson Blu Hotel, Glasgow, UK

About the event

The International Enhancement Conference is the UK's largest learning and teaching event and was last held on 6-8 June in Glasgow. This Conference explored a multifaceted approach to transforming the student experience and welcomed over 600 delegates from across 17 different countries. The three-day programme offered lots of opportunity to exchange views and share experience around the following six interrelated tracks:

  • Using data to enhance the student experience
  • National and institutional approaches to quality and evaluating impact
  • Internationalising the student experience
  • Accessing higher education
  • Transitions through higher education
  • Positive destinations for students including postgraduate study and employability

These tracks supported our desire to engage with delegates from across the UK and around the globe. The Conference also provided an important opportunity to celebrate the outcomes of work the Scottish higher education sector has been actively progressing on the Student Transitions Enhancement Theme as part of our integrated Quality Enhancement Framework.
