Student involvement in quality assurance
We are proud of our level of engagement with our student body, giving students the opportunity to share their opinions and to participate as our partners in the University's decision making processes.
Specifically, we support the Academic Student Support System and conduct regular student surveys to ensure we are always working to benefit students.
This is an important element that reflects the broader trends in Higher Education and fulfils expectations outlined in Chapter B5 of the QAA Quality Code that "higher education providers take deliberate steps to engage all students, individually and collectively, as partners in the assurance and enhancement of their educational experience":
- Annual review and enhancement (ARE)
- Periodic review
- developments in approving new/revised programmes on a School/University level
- developments in new/revised collaborative provision on a School/University level
We will continue to get the most out of the successes of the "students as partners" work such as the advanced Student Academic Representatives System, the networks and training system; systems for data collection to collate and respond to internal and external survey data; the obligations to student engagement and the provision of partnership opportunities as enshrined in the Student Charter.
