Higher Education Policy Unit

Dear Colleague

I am writing to invite you to attend the HEPI Spring Conference on the impact of the Government's HE reforms on university admissions - what school and college leaders need to know - which is taking place on Wednesday 15 May 2013 at the Royal Society, London SW1.

At the conference, school and college leaders will have the opportunity to learn in detail how the Government's reform agenda is fundamentally transforming university admissions. As well as finding out what's important to students and applicants when making their university choices, they can also learn how schools and colleges need adapt to this new world of higher education which seeks to place students at the heart of the system.

Speakers include the Minister for Science & Universities, the Rt Hon David Willetts ; the Chief Executive of UCAS, Mary Curnock Cook; the Director of the Office for Fair Access, Professor Les Ebdon; the President of the Association of School and College Leaders and Head of Northampton School for Boys, Mike Griffiths; the Master, Magdalen College School & President-elect of the HMC, Dr Tim Hands; the Vice Chancellor, University of Birmingham (and chair of the Russell Group) Professor David Eastwood; the Vice Chancellor, University of Lincoln, Professor Mary Stuart; the President of the NUS, Liam Burns; as well as Peter Vicary-Smith, the Chief Executive of Which? the consumer rights champion which has recently launched Which? University - a website designed to help students make more informed decisions about their higher education choices.

We would be delighted if you could join us at the HEPI Spring Conference - the attached conference brochure provides full details of the programme together with a booking form.

with best wishes
