We bring you a new format, new insight, and evidence-based accounts of “What works” for you to take back to your university with you. Hear from the new regulator as Sarah Howls of the Office for Students joins us to discuss “What works?”. Plus, UCAS Director, Helen Thorne MBE, will give us unprecedented insight into what works in engineering admissions through an evidenced-based reflection on some of the engineering data exclusively held by UCAS. With a welcome from Professor Sir Chris Husbands.
