The annual EFYE conference is planned by the EFYE Network, a group of academics and support staff from across Europe who are interested in improving the experience of students as they enter and progress through higher education.

The EFYE conference is a great opportunity for participants to expand their theoretical knowledge, to hear and learn about best practice, to get inspired from examples that see real results and to expand their network.

The conference dinner, which is optional and requires an additional ticket, will take place on Tuesday June 18, 2019 between 18.30 -22.30.

We hope to welcome between 250 and 300 participants to Cork from many different countries across Europe and beyond. English is the lingua franca for the conference. Will you join us at EFYE 2019?
