Welcome to the HEDQF Event listings page

This year started with excellent events at UCL’s new School of Management on the 38th floor of One Canada Square, Canary Wharf, London and at the University of Kent where we visited the new Sibson Building, which brings together the Schools of Business and Mathematics into one building, the new Wigoder Law Clinic and Moot Court and the refurbishment and extension of the Templeman Library at the heart of the 1960’s campus. This was followed by a debate and discussion on the subject of “Is the Lecture Theatre Dead” at King’s College London’s recent refurbishment of Bush House.
