Event Report - Linking London Friday News Round (March)

Our monthly round up of what's been going on, as well as a look ahead to what’s coming up helps our partners keep tabs on all the key things that are going on in the world of education.

Our ever-popular Friday News Round – updating partners on developments in the education sector – started with a brief cover of recent UCAS numbers.

We then summarised a Sutton Trust report on maintenance grants, some more findings regarding the cost-of-living crisis, and the progression to HE rates of T level students.

We also discussed foundation years courses, publications and news articles related to apprenticeships, and the experience of disabled students at university – among other things.

Feedback from attendees at our News Round events has been really positive:

“Great digest of what is happening in the world of education.” University colleague

“It allowed me to acquire lots of relevant information in a short time.” College colleague

“Very useful overview of all the latest reports and initiatives in HE.” College colleague


The next Friday News Round will take place on April 26.
