Timings and practical details

The link was open from 9.45am, and the meeting itself began at 10.00am and finished by 1.00pm. It was free to join, and details of the joining arrangements were circulated to those who register.

As we were not constrained by venue size, there was no limit to the number of participants from institutions.  However, delegates were still required to register, so we knew numbers and could keep the event secure. As usual we specifically invited staff from institutions or students’ associations in Scotland with student engagement or academic representation responsibilities.
