The Higher Education Research Group’s aim is to bring together innovative and leading-edge research in a wide range of contemporary, policy-related areas of higher education. The group acts as a forum for the presentation of research ideas through its regular series of seminars, as well as a vehicle for the production of new research in wide areas of higher education. Its remit and span of interests are broad and eclectic, encompassing a diverse field of interests and specialisms from both within Southampton Education School and across the University of Southampton. This includes: Higher Education, Lifelong Learning and Graduate Employability Access, Participation and transitions to Higher Education Higher Education Policy, Management and Leadership Higher Education Learning, Pedagogy & the Student Experience Globalisation and Internationalisation of the Higher Education System
