Developing a culture of student engagement within the sector is a key part of our work. Our national conferences serve to develop that culture through celebration and dissemination of innovative practice, showcasing the breadth and quality of student engagement activity that is taking place across our colleges and universities.

Our most recent conference took place on Thursday 23rd March 2017, with a focus on 'Impact' - the impact that students and students’ associations in partnership with colleges, universities and other agencies are making to the enhancement in the quality of the learning experience.  See the conference webpage for all the details.
