HR In HE Conference

HR in HE Community Conference Bursaries


To promote the international mobility of staff and assist more members to attend the ACU HR in HE Community Conference, we are pleased to offer a limited number of partial bursaries for HR staff in ACU member institutions.

The bursaries will cover:

  • Conference registration fee (including the Welcome Evening, Gala Dinner, conference lunches and refreshments, and conference materials)
  • Accommodation at the recommended hotel for the conference (for the nights of 21-23 September only)

These payments will be made directly by the ACU on behalf of the awardee.

*All other costs (e.g. travel, visa fees and the optional Masterclasses and optional post-conference tour fees) will be the responsibility of the awardee.

There will be a selection process where the following will be taken into consideration:

  • Relevance of job role - we are looking for support staff with a specific remit for Human Resource Management
  • Ability to influence - you would be expected to have some ability to effect change (in the HRM function) within your institution
  • Reasons for wanting to attend the conference - you would be expected to provide a sound justification for attending the conference and have clear ideas about what you hope to gain professionally and personally from it
  • How knowledge gained will be shared/implemented on return to home institution
  • Previous overseas travel for work purposes
  • Support from your institution – including approval at senior level for you to attend the conference, commitment to cover other costs related to conference attendance not covered by the bursary (see above*) and support for you to share/implement the knowledge gained on your return
