Forthcoming Dates

The Progression Lottery: Consequences for Students of Regulatory Variation in the UKHE Sector (A joint NUCCAT and SACWG seminar)

Date:  Monday 2nd October 2017
Time: 10:30am – 3:00pm
Venue:  Sheffield Hallam University

In 2015 NUCCAT and SACWG commenced an investigation into the extent to which different regulatory mechanisms used by UK universities to facilitate student progression were effective in fostering achievement. The findings of the first phase of research were launched in October 2016 at a Seminar in which the scope for the second phase of research was agreed: mapping the impact of regulatory variety on individual students.

The outcomes from this second phase of the research project will be launched at a joint NUCCAT & SACWG Seminar on 2nd October 2017. The Seminar will include a presentation of the findings of the research project to date, discussion of germane themes and exploration of the extent to which academic regulation can or should be fair, equitable and just. Delegates will receive a copy of the project ‘phase 2’ report.
