The future of universities - recordings available


Recordings available

Recordings of this live panel discussion and Q&A which was held on 4 June 2020, on 'The future of universities' are now available.

Here's a short teaser to give you a taste of what's to come in the full recording.

The COVID-19 pandemic is shaking the foundations of university systems the world over.

Revenues have plummeted, teaching and research disrupted, and international students stranded abroad.

Even before the pandemic, universities were thinking hard about their role and relevance in societies profoundly changed by technology and awash with expert advice.

  • How well have universities adapted to COVID-19 and what changes to the university model are here to stay?
  • More broadly, what should the university of the future look like?
  • What is core university business in a Covid-19 world?
