Thank you for your interest in this year’s QAHE Annual Learning & Teaching Conference.

Unfortunately, due to the current uncertainty caused by the outbreak of Covid-19 and the effect that future government advice might have on travel and attendance, we have taken the practical decision to postpone the date of the conference until the situation is clearer.

In the meantime, please keep emailing your abstracts and ideas to, and we will get back to you as soon as we can to let you know the new revised conference date.

Accessible & Inclusive Learning refers to how our learners’ needs are recognised, accommodated and supported before, during and beyond their studies in Higher Education. With this in mind QAHE invites your abstracts and proposals for presentations, workshops and posters on any and all aspects of this theme and sub-themes:

  • Technology & Digital: how can software and devices make learning more accessible and inclusive?
  • Assessment & Feedback: how are learners differing needs accounted for in current practice?
  • Learning to Learn: how can we support our learners’ transition to meet new expectations?
  • The Student Voice: Are we listening? How can our students’ voices be best heard?

This event is open to a range of QAHE staff and students, and our partner institutions. If you have something to contribute please submit a proposal or abstract for one of the below options:

  • 20 minute presentation
  • 40 minute workshop
  • Poster with 5 minute presentation

Submission guidelines can be found here.

Please send you submissions to by 16 March. The outcome will be communicated on 30 March.

What our students say

Assad Althunayyan

Pre-Sessional English

"The teaching staff are really friendly and helpful."

We work in groups which means I can improve my English really quickly.

Olasheni Ogunwende

MSc Business with International Management

"I chose to study at Northumbria University London because it offers a great university experience in the heart of London."

The business school was the main attraction for me as it is has an AACSB double accreditation.
