Research events

CHES research events

These events provide a forum for academic debate, policy analysis and practice insight in higher education and supporting the exchange of theories, methods and data across the social sciences.

We run three types of research events:

  • Symposia: international academics and experts meet to present papers and to discuss future research agendas.
  • Seminars: a top scholar presents a piece of their research.
  • Doctoral seminars: PhD and EdD students in the field of higher education studies present their ongoing research.

If you would like to present your research as part of the CHES research events, please contact: ioe.ches_seminar@ucl.ac.uk
