Institutional performance and the student experience - time for revolution or evolution

In a year in which we have seen substantial change to our sector and national landscape, with the higher education White Paper, TEF, Higher Education & Research Bill and Brexit, to name just a few, how are we as institutions rising to the challenge of demonstrating our value and quality?  With student applications substantially down across the sector and the alignment of institutional performance to tuition fees, never has it been more important to demonstrate excellence and stand out from replica watches the crowd.  The 2017 AMHEC conference will explore the challenges faced by the sector and by our own individual institutions and will challenge delegates to reflect on their University and whether incremental change and improvement is sustainable or whether something more revolutionary is called for.

With speakers from within and outside the sector, the 2017 conference is a must for your professional calendar.

2016 Annual AMHEC Conference

Put the date in your diary!

The Annual AMHEC Conference will take place at the University of Chester on Thursday and Friday 7th and 8th April 2016.

Panerai is certainly a frequently polarizing brand that has, lately, seen a massive spike in recognition and it has switched right into a somewhat household title in men's luxury timepieces. While SIHH saw numerous new models from Panerai, none were as intriguing since the panerai luminor chrono clone watches.These records layout enables the Regatta 72 hours to remain while using familiar Fake Panerai Luminor Chrono dial aesthetic while still offering a powerful look at the pass time getting an optimum method of calculating 12 hrs. This layout is fantastically elegant and taking advantage of color is just enough to produce the PAM00526 apart from their other chronograph models.
