What's the big idea? Universities Week, 13-19 June 2011

Universities Week

Universities impact on all areas of our lives – on society, business, economy and on our future.

Universities Week, coordinated by Universities UK, the representative body for all UK universities, with support from over 100 institutions, including Essex, showcases the excellent work happening in higher education across the country and highlights the crucial contributions universities make.

Each day of Universities Week will tell a story about a unique aspect of the country’s universities and their influence on the economy, culture, society, and the future.
