Enhancing the Student Experience

Moving into the Mainstream.

Those elements of the Project which were judged by the Student Enhancement Programme Board to have made a significant impact were taken into the 2014/15 planning round and additional investment has been secured to mainstream some but not all project work streams.

The work of the Student Experience Project has been focused around three key aims.

To:

  •                 develop better understanding of the student experience;
  •                 pilot and implement developments to services and activities;
  •                 enrich the experience of all students of the University

Recent reporting on our work streams has shown that the SEP’s activities are making a significant impact across the University and show that we have:

  • developed, piloted and implemented new services and approaches to supporting students in an increasingly diverse environment;
  • enhanced University practices in relation to the applicant experience, transition and orientation, student communications, and to course and programme information delivery and use;
  • delivered student surveys and data that is leading to a better understanding of the student experience;
  • led on the development of the University’s role in promoting a healthy living and study environment for students;
  • and worked to improve the University’s engagement with students, through student volunteering and service learning developments beyond the University and the development of Schools Councils.
