Webinar: How do students contribute to university life and success across the globe? How to make it effective?

Students and scholars are central to the mission, life and success of universities.

The original and new Magna Charta 2020 include them both specifically and by implication in terms of their rights and responsibilities. There is variation in how students interact with their universities across the globe. This webinar looks at the student contribution, how it happens, its benefits and what makes it particularly effective. We are pleased to be partnering with the MCO for this event.
