Bookings open for 2018 MSA Annual Conference

Bookings open for 2018 MSA Annual Conference

The Modern Studies Association (MSA) Annual Conference is the highlight of the MSA’s calendar. This year’s Annual Conference will return to Glasgow’s Queen Margaret Union (QMU) on Saturday 3 November 2018.

As ever, the event will start at 10.15am (with registration open from 9.30am) and run until 3.30pm, with a variety of topic-specific keynote addresses and hands on workshops that aim to provide Modern Studies Teachers with a great CLPL experience.

As part of this year’s event, we are delighted to announce that lawyer Aamer Anwar will be our keynote speaker, while several workshops focussing on international, political and social issues will offer Modern Studies Teachers a fantastic CLPL opportunity. Make sure you book your seminar option as you go through the booking process.

Make sure that you buy your tickets quick – a reduced rate applies until 15 September 2018, and after this date, only general admission tickets (£75) will be available. Those who are currently PGDE students at any University can purchase a special student ticket, costing £15, when they go on sale at the end of August. Please note that tickets will need to be shown on the day while PGDE students will be asked to present their valid student ID cards for access to the Conference.

If your establishment or local authority will be paying for your ticket and they wish to pay via invoice, then this is possible. Just click the green ‘Tickets’ button at the top of the page, select your desired ticket type and quantity, before hitting ‘Checkout’. When the page loads, scroll down to the ‘Payment’ section and choose ‘Pay by invoice’ from the drop-down menu next to ‘Payment method’. When you have completed the booking process, an invoice should be attached to your booking confirmation e-mail, though this might arrive in your Spam or Junk folder(s).
