European Access Network

16 May 2014

Staff from the University of Newcastle will attend the 23rd annual European Access Network being held at the University of Edinburgh in Scotland from June 2-4, 2014.

The conference will be exploring how technology has changed the education landscape and if it delivers wider access and success in higher education. 

Matt Lumb, Liz Goode and Dr Rachel Buchanan from the University of Newcastle are deeply involved with access to higher education and will be attending the conference to gain further insight into the growing field of technological applications. 

"The upcoming EAN conference is a great opportunity for the University of Newcastle (UoN) to connect with innovative practitioners, policy makers and academics from around the globe who are all working to ensure the equity of access to higher education is maintained through this era of technological proliferation. 

Our institution has a long history of supporting students from a range of backgrounds to gain a University education so it is encouraging that the UoN voice is beginning to be heard on the world stage in terms of equity focused research and practice," said Aim High School Liaison Officer, Matt Lumb.
