The Student Conference

Our conference for students, by students. On 25-26 May our students and alumni will be discussing their success, how to define it, to build FOR it and ON it. Find out more and join in.

These two days are really about celebrating success. It's about really stepping back and saying, 'this is about what I have achieved, this is about what I can achieve' - Jane Harrington, Vice-Chancellor
