The latest edition of University Business magazine is now available to read online, for free.   

On the cover

It may be an institution reminiscent of the classic Oxbridge model, but Durham’s new 10-year strategy proves it isn’t resting on its laurels.

Detailing various elements of university life, the new strategy has a definite focus on the complete student experience. As is becoming ever more clear in the HE sector, gone are the days of a university that thrives on one feature of excellence alone; with the incredible amount of worldwide competition and soaring fees, every institution is now held to higher standards than ever. 

Estate of Play

Post-Brexit, there is one major concern facing estates managers up and down the UK: the status of the UK construction market. So in this spirit of uncertainty about both university funding and the future of capital projects, how can universities future-proof their estates? 

 

The Edtech Evolution

From 4K resolution to Google Cardboard, AR to BYOD, technology (and its application in education) is marching on as fast as ever. Unsurprisingly, today’s students are rightly demanding the very best technology – and expertise in said tech – to enhance the learning experience for which they have made such a huge investment. So, what are the key innovations improving learning and teaching on UK campuses?

 

CUBO 2017

More than 250 HE experts gathered at the University of Kent in Canterbury, for this year’s CUBO conference and awards. From the speakers to the food, the entertainment and the venues, this year’s conference stayed true to its roots and really highlighted the best that Canterbury had to offer. Read the full review, in this issue.
