About the Annual Conference

A fixture of the higher education calendar for more than 40 years, the AUA Annual Conference and Exhibition is the largest of its kind in the UK.

Back in Manchester for the second time, ‘Revolution and Reinvention’ is the theme for 2014. Manchester is defined by its industrial past and has reinvented itself many times since to become the city it is today.  Higher Education will be defined by how the sector reacts to the ongoing changes it faces – and these changes offer the opportunity for our own personal revolution and reinvention. 

The aim of the conference is to inspire excellence in higher education administration and management through personal and professional development. To achieve this, the programme draws together a wide range of sessions which enable participants to:

  • enhance their knowledge and understanding of the sector
  • explore new concepts and ideas in HE management and administration
  • share good practice
  • develop new skills




For 2014, the Annual Conference and Exhibition will align to three professional behaviours from the AUA CPD Framework:

Finding innovative solutions Embracing change Working with people
