Expectations v Reality of the 2021 Admissions Cycle
21 October 2021
Accommodation Matters, our accommodation-focused podcast for the Higher Education sector, is back for a third series. This time, we’re looking back at the 2021 admissions cycle and what it’s meant for students, universities and accommodation providers – as well as what it might mean for the future.
Following a bumper admissions cycle, our guests share their experiences of meeting the needs of an expanded student cohort for 2021/22, how the return to campus has panned out over the autumn, and how they’re thinking about their accommodation strategy for this year and the future, as well as insights on student vaccination rates, Empty Nest Syndrome, and whether the UK will see a new wave of international student arrivals in January.
Host Darren Ellis returns for the new series, and is joined by an expert sector panel of:
- Vanessa Wilson, CEO of University Alliance
- Wendy Roberts, Director of Staff and Student Accommodation at University of Warwick
- Robert Garnish, Commercial Services Director at University of Glasgow
- Karan Khanna, Chief Customer Officer at Unite Students
