Student Education Conference 2015
The Student Education Conference 2015 looked at who the Leeds graduate is and what makes their journey distinctive. It described the journey that students make as they transition to, within and from university, and explored the way the University of Leeds engages with and supports these crucial phases of the student experience.
Speakers and panellists included representatives from schools and academies explaining how they prepare their pupils for university, together with employers and alumni who discussed how the University of Leeds can help our students become the distinctive graduates widely sought by professional and civic organisations around the world.
