We have a great deal of talent in our student group and finding ways of fostering this will facilitate not only a richer learning experience for students’ but one that also enhances us as a ‘learning’ institute. Part of the talk will be hearing from students and recent alumnus on curriculum initiatives within which they were the central drivers.


Prof Anne Flanagan, Centre for Commercial Law Studies

Internationalisation is a continuous teaching challenge at the Centre for Commercial Law Studies. Our nearly 1000 lawyer students represent over 100 countries. Globalization has greatly impacted legal practice with firms representing international corporate clients across borders and seeking only graduates with top legal and other key skills. CCLS has sought to respond to these challenges via a range of specialism curricula and a co-curricular programme designed to foster professional skill development. This presentation will explore these.


Adam Sutcliffe, School of Engineering and Materials

Coming from a life in business and start-ups I want to explore how institutions might better work with business to:

  1. Provide students with relevant real world experience but in an academically supported environment
  2. Foster and develop relationships that might lead to future collaborations.
  3. Better understand the needs of business so that we can adapt our teaching such that our students are fit for the roles that they will fill.
  4. Open up new venture streams.
  5. Encourage entrepreneurialism within the cohort.

I have run a number of initiatives both at QMUL and the RCA which have successfully demonstrated that these 5 points are achievable. I’d like to share the insights gained from this and have a discussion as to whether it such initiatives are easily scaleable.
