Who should attend?
This conference is suitable for everyone involved in student communication in higher education institutions from early to senior level of professionalism.
Welcome from the Chair:
Hello Student Communicators, I am looking forward to bringing together colleagues from across the UK and Europe for our always exciting annual event. Now running for over a decade, the CASE Student Communications Conference brings together leading practitioners, providing a space dedicated to exploring how we engage with our current students. Our 2022 conference saw our successful return to running the event in-person and it was bubbling with discussions and energy. We’re still working on the exact structure and content of the day for our 2023 event, but as always it will include tangible case studies and lessons learned from those working in the field. Whether you’re completely new to this conference / the world of student communications – or a seasoned veteran of the field – I’m sure you’ll get a lot out of the day.
I look forward to seeing you there and please do get in touch if you have any questions.
