supported by

On Friday 24 November 2017 the annual gradireland Higher Education Awards & Symposium took place. These awards, now in their seventh year, are the blue riband event for higher education professionals, postgraduate admissions officers and course providers across the island of Ireland.

The Symposium was introduced to universal acclaim in 2016 and that continued this year with an expanded programme to engage and inspire. Created to facilitate a forum for learning, networking and exchange of best practice both nationally and internationally, the Higher Education Symposium featured sessions on developing a whole institution approach to improve student retention and success, a practical guide to developing student resilience, improving the student experience and a content marketing masterclass.

The gradireland Higher Education Awards were presented after lunch on the day of the Symposium to those shortlisted
