“Higher Education’s most influential speakers will be not only giving talks but also taking part in probing panel sessions and debates on a huge range of the most important issues facing HE.

So much is changing in the university world, technologically, politically, socially and financially and this is a great opportunity to learn more, share our thoughts and meet HE’s leading practitioners to help with shaping all our futures.

Held at The University of Buckingham’s beautiful town centre campus, the festival will be modelled on the hugely successful Sunday Times Festival of Education which I started at Wellington College six years ago and which has gone on to be the biggest conference in the school calendar with over 300 speakers.

Anthony Seldon

The festival will appeal not only to academic staff but also to students, administrators and managers in the HE and FE sector and teachers/advisers in secondary schools who are looking for new insights into how the sector is changing and what it might look like, well into the future.”

Anthony Seldon
Vice Chancellor, University of Buckingham
