Office of the Dean of Students

The 1st AKU Congress of Student Experience will catalyse the conversation around student experience in higher education; the current state, and the possibilities. We will ask and answer questions on how universities can innovate to be more engaging and student-centred. Through a variety of activities both academic and experiential, with a strong sense of fun throughout, we will challenge students to be the owners, co-creators and designers of their educational experience. The first of its kind, this Congress is sure to shift perspectives on what it can mean to be a student in the region and beyond.
