The challenges and opportunities for the Higher Education sector - transitioning from the impacts of COVID-19

The COVID-19 pandemic is affecting every sector, forcing them to make decisions rapidly in a highly uncertain environment. But what are the implications for Higher Education? Is COVID-19 sparking a revolution as universities worldwide are forced to digitise services and delivery models, or are there still more questions than answers?

We’ve spoken to many Higher Education Institutions during the pandemic as well as hosting a number of online focus groups with students. Now we want to address ‘the elephants in the room’: the issues you’re working through on a daily basis as you look at your short, medium and long term priorities.

Watch the recording of our webinar held on 28 May where we brought together a panel of experts to discuss the impacts of COVID-19 on Higher Education. From supporting the welfare of staff with reimagined training programmes to the operational challenges for the September 2020 intake, we addressed some of the most pressing things on your minds. We also looked ahead at longer term issues, as our experts analysed the financial challenges of the expected fall in student numbers and the ongoing cultural implications of remote working.
