Nurturing Bright Futures, UEA’s annual CPD-certified HE conference for teachers and advisers, will take place on Thursday 9 and Friday 10 June 2022. 

This is a free, CPD-certified residential conference for education professionals working with students as they apply for and progress to higher education. 

This year, which sees the event returning to our beautiful campus after two years online, we will be offering an exciting and varied programme designed to provide advice and help for you to support your students – particularly in light of the challenges we have all faced over the last couple of years.
