Please note that our call for abstracts for SCUTREA's Conference, 'It's All Adult Education' has been extended until Friday 30th January 2015.

Our conference will be held at the University of Leeds from Tuesday 7th - Thursday 9th July 2015. We invite abstract submissions by Friday 30th January 2015. Please note this extended deadline applies also to bursary applications.

The SCUTREA Conference provides a platform for researchers and professionals who engage with the education of adults and lifelong learning to address key areas of national and international concern. This year's conference theme – ‘It’s All Adult Education’ – is also seeking to reach out to those researchers and practitioners whose work may not be primarily focused on adults and lifelong learning but who have developed a keen interest in this area.

The full submission guidelines for this call can be downloaded from the conference web site: or by clicking on the image on the left.

Information on the bursaries available through SCUTREA can also be downloaded from the above site. Priority for bursaries has traditionally been given to UK doctoral students. However, applications from Masters students and adult education practitioners/activists/researchers will also be considered. Applicants must address the themes of the conference and demonstrably contribute to the field of adult education research.
