Breaking Boundaries: call for session proposals

Every year AMOSSHE hosts a national conference – the largest annual gathering of Student Services leaders in the UK higher education sector, and the keystone of AMOSSHE’s continuing professional development offering. Our 2016 national conference, Breaking Boundaries, takes place in Glasgow from 6 to 8 July 2016.


Breaking Boundaries aims to inspire Student Services leaders to reach beyond the boundaries: explore new approaches, develop current success, consider international perspectives, and discover new potential as we work to break down barriers and develop student success without boundaries.

We’re now looking for engaging and inspiring session proposals that explore innovative practice and strategy, new perspectives (including international approaches), and leading edge practice.

The event will feature both interactive workshops and presentation sessions across the three days of the conference. The sessions will be all about thinking outside the box in our efforts to break down barriers to student success and enhance the student experience.

Send us your ideas!

Breaking Boundaries needs the imaginative input of the higher education sector in order to be truly relevant and productive for Student Services professionals. Your participation shapes the agenda and ensures that the AMOSSHE national conference is relevant, useful, and inspiring.

Leading a workshop or presenting your work at our conference is a good way to explore new ideas, get feedback on your work, develop your professional confidence and standing, and start new discussions.

For example, you or your colleagues may have undertaken initiatives or research that others can learn from; you may have inspiring success stories to tell; or there may be challenges that you want to explore in a structured way in order to share good practice and develop new strategies.

Please submit your session proposal by midday on Friday 12 February 2016. Find out more about proposing a session for Breaking Boundaries here: call for proposals.
