Welcome to the University Alliance Summit 2020

We are delighted to welcome you to this year’s Summit event.

Whilst we are disappointed we will not be able to gather in person this year, and especially at Kingston University’s new Town House Building, we are so pleased that we can still come together online.

We hope that our free virtual event affords our colleagues across the Alliance a chance to come together and hear from a range of external speakers and discuss how, as professional and technical universities, we are learning, responding and adapting to the challenges posed by the pandemic, and how we can continue our ambitions to serve our communities throughout and beyond the crisis.

On this webpage you will find all the information you need to access the event, including links to live sessions on zoom, registration pages for the workshops, and pre-recorded talks and speeches.

  • If you would like to post about the event on social media, don’t forget to include our Twitter handle @UniAlliance and the hashtag #UASummit2020
  • We will be using Padlet to capture your feedback throughout the event, and enable real-time discussion. Please use this link to engage with other participants throughout the event.
