Presenting: The Forum at TEN

It was in 2012 that The Forum at the University of Exeter officially opened. At the time, this cutting-edge project was championed as a beacon of innovation and future-thinking in the higher education sector.

A decade on, this scheme’s learning legacy has been reassessed, its influence and impact on university operations, student experience and across the sector. If it were being built today, what would we do differently? How might the Forum satisfy the needs of future students?

Places are strictly limited, so please enquire and register your interest to, with the subject 'EduBreakfast' by Thursday 6 October 2022.

Timing: Tuesday 18 October 08:00-09:00 | Manchester Central
