    Event synopsis: Part-time students are now accounting for 45.6% of university enrolments, underlining the need to revisit provisions for part-time students and to increase efforts to support work-based based students and adult learners. This conference will look at key challenges part-time study is providing for institutions and learners alike, particularly: � Consider questions about employability of part-time students � Hear from Professor Christine King about findings of her inquiry into part-time study conducted for the Department of Innovation, Universities and Skills � Understand adult learners and the needs and requirements they have when studying part-time � Discuss the impact of the changes to equivalent or lower qualification funding (ELQ funding) and have a constructive assessment of possible solutions to the challenges institutions will face � Evaluate innovative ways of delivering the curriculum, either face-to face or through distance learning
