UK Universities: Political affairs in higher education 2022

As we move towards a post-pandemic world, and into a new phase of the government’s domestic agenda, Savanta are delighted to present at this year’s UK Universities Political affairs in higher education conference.

Delegates will meet to discuss current and forthcoming political priorities for the sector, and how to successfully make the case for policies that will allow universities to fulfil their potential as positive drivers of change throughout the country.

Savanta’s very own: Nicola Archer (Social Research Director) will present public polling commissioned exclusively for the conference with a focus on what the public feels the role of universities is, both in wider society and their everyday lives.

Key experts will cover the latest political developments around the Post-18 Funding Review, the Levelling Up Agenda, the Freedom of Speech Bill, academic freedom and more.

At a time in which important decisions are being made about the future funding and regulation of higher education, this conference will give you insight into the broader domestic and international political drivers that will influence government thinking.

Speakers include:

  • Justine Greening, Former Secretary of State for Education
  • Ed Dorrell, Director of Education, Public First
  • Aveek Bhattacharya, Chief Economist, Social Market Foundation
  • Gideon Skinner, Head of Politics, Public Affairs, UK, Ipsos Mori
  • Martin Webb, External Engagement Manager, Sheffield Hallam University
  • Nicola Archer, Social Research Director, Savanta
