Abstract

Recent changes within the UK, including the HE Bill, increased marketisation and consumerism are changing what it means to learn and to teach within HE. However, this is by no means a universal trend. This presentation considers global student and parental perceptions and expectations of HE and the results of a ten-week project on happiness, resilience and community within a UK HEI. Despite the challenge of consumerism, is there still potential for UK universities to be transformative spaces that cultivate happiness and resilience; and that contribute to a sense of belonging and community?
