Wonkhe presents The Secret Life of Students - the essential event for anyone working on policy or delivery for students in higher education. Through the theme of Doing Diversity Differently, the event will be rethinking the model of designing learning environments based on an imagined “normal” student and then applying sticking plaster interventions based on diverse student characteristics. A new approach is needed to stay in step with how students think about diversity, experience higher education in diverse ways, and what a genuinely diverse student body might need from professionals, and each other to feel that they belong in higher education.

Think through how engaging with students’ lived experience can transform strategy, policy and delivery, and consider what students are experiencing and saying about harassment and discrimination, and the boundaries between security and freedom. And you'll hear from big names including Office for Students Chief Executive Nicola Dandridge. There will also be a wealth of new insight to share from Wonkhe’s own research with students and higher education professionals and leaders.
