London Higher at THE Live 2019 – HE in a Global City: a London Perspective


London Higher was thrilled to participate in THE Live 2019, gathering together heads of our member institutions for a dynamic breakfast discussion.

Fifteen senior representatives from London Higher member institutions, together with our CEO, Jane Glanville, and Head of AccessHE, Dr Graeme Atherton, joined John Gill, Editor of THE, for “HE in a Global City: a London Perspective”.  The discussion examined the diverse ways in which London HEIs are addressing the challenges facing today’s global cities, as well as embracing the opportunities arising from being located in the capital.  Our members had the opportunity not only to engage in lively discussion on a range of topical matters, but also to highlight the contribution that London’s HEIs make nationally, as well as regionally, and to showcase the excellent work being done by London’s diverse institutions for the people and communities of London.
