A look back at some highlights from 2014

LogoIt has been a busy 12 months for EUA in terms of policy, project and event activities. We take a look back at a selection of EUA activities from the last year.

  • Members of the EUA Council for Doctoral Education (EUA-CDE) gather at the Dokuz Eylül University in Izmir, Turkey for a thematic workshop on Outcomes of Doctoral Education – Mindset, Research, Innovation.

National networks to help more young people access higher education

HEFCE logoA new £22 million scheme involving over 200 higher education institutions and reaching 4,300 secondary schools and colleges aims to encourage more young people into higher education.
The National Networks for Collaborative Outreach (NNCO) will deliver a nationally co-ordinated approach to working with schools, universities and colleges to help people access higher education [Note 1].   Local and regional providers of higher education have come together to form the networks, ensuring comprehensive coverage across England.
Thirty-five local networks will cover the whole of England. Each network will appoint a single point of contact to help teachers and advisers find out about higher education outreach activity in their area and to provide general advice about progression into higher education. Three more networks will offer advice and support to specific groups of students at national level, including older learners wishing to continue or return to study and care leavers.
The local networks will host web-sites with information about outreach activity, and signpost other information to support schools and colleges as they prepare their students for higher education.
The networks are funded by the Department for Business, Innovation and Skills and managed by HEFCE. More...

HEFCE evidence and input to the 2014 government consultations on the Science and Innovation Strategy and Science Capital Roadmap

HEFCE logoAs part of our work to develop evidence to underpin policy, HEFCE gathered new evidence to support our response to the Government’s capital consultation.

The new evidence includes an update of the tables from the 2006 report, a summary report on institutional case studies undertaken by Deloitte earlier in 2014, and a report on a joint HEFCE-Universities UK survey of higher education institutions undertaken earlier in 2014. These new pieces of evidence can be found below, and their main findings are reflected in our response to the consultation. More...
