We’re excited to announce that the Students Transitions Achievement Retention & Success Conference (STARS), Equity Practitioners in Higher Education Australasia (EPHEA) and National Association of Enabling Educators of Australia (NAEEA) will be joining together to host the 2024 Student Success Conference.

Internationally, access to and improving the student experience in further education and training remains a focus for all higher education institutions. In Australia, for example, the release of the Australian Universities Accord Report (expected December 2023) will be the key focus for education practitioners. The Accord Report and Recommendations are expected to shape policy and practice with an aim to improve the quality, accessibility, affordability and sustainability of higher education.

STARS, EPHEA and NAEEA believe it is timely to bring together organisations whose key focus is student success, in a collegial forum to disseminate current research, good practice and progressive ideas and opportunities focused on enhancing the student learning experience.

In 2024 the STARS Conference will also be celebrating its 10th anniversary and the Student Success Journal will be publishing its 15th volume.
