Attendees will hear from Professor Paul Wakeling, Head of Department of Education, from the University of York, author of a number of important publications focussing on postgraduate education and social mobility and from Rosie Cox, Professor of Geography, on Birkbeck University of London's innovative postgraduate widening access strategy. This will be followed by group discussion which will provide an opportunity for partners to share good practice, identify solutions and areas for collaboration.
