The next phase of the University Accord Consultation process will commence from Wednesday 19th July, with the Minister of Education releasing the initial recommendations from the University Accord Panel. STARS and EPHEA have collaborated to provide a FREE webinar to provide an opportunity for all staff across the higher education sector to hear from experts to gain a deep understanding of what is proposed in the initial Accord recommendations and what this might mean for the sector.

On the 20th of July speakers and panel members explored the initial Accord recommendations through an equity lens, and generated discussion and insights about creating an accessible and inclusive higher education system.
