Enhancing your programme

Get involved in programme review.

Student engagement is crucial to the quality of the University's teaching and learning. By taking opportunities to be involved with quality processes like Internal Periodic Reviews, you are not only influencing your own study but that of future students.

Every degree programme across the University is reviewed on a six-year cycle through the process of Internal Periodic Review. There are many ways that students can get involved in programme review:

  • Student feedback, including feedback gathered through surveys, is considered by the Panel carrying out the review. 
  • Discussions within your School/subject area about the programme review.
  • Meeting with the Panel carrying out the programme review to discuss your experiences. 

Student Panel Members

Each review panel includes a student member, who is a full member of the team. The student review panel member is not reviewing their own programme, but is from another subject area within the University. Further information about becoming involved in these reviews is available from Edinburgh University Students' Association.
