The group is keen to develop collaborative and multi-disciplinary research and undertake a range of policy-driven higher education research activities. It seeks to build upon its work on a range of externally-funded research, and to continue to promote links to the wider higher education, practitioner and policy community. Core activities of the group include:
- Regular seminars involving the dissemination of higher education research by University of Southampton academics and practitioners, as well as external speakers from the academic, practitioner and policy fields. These are intended to provide discussion and debate in higher education issues and provide an opportunity for cross-disciplinary exchange. These seminars are open to all university members as well as others from different institutions with interests in higher education issues.
- Seminars, workshops and group meetings to discuss the development of future research projects and capacity-building, including the development of research bids and potential collaboration.
- Support for publications and for early-career doctoral students, including the opportunity for doctoral students to present their work and discuss research ideas in a supportive research environment.
