Student Panel

The University is constantly striving to improve student experience, and the Panel gives students the opportunity to shape this process through feedback and review.

Students have fed back that they receive too many surveys, therefore we created  the Student Panel to reduce the number of surveys all students receive.

Panel members are engaged students who want to help to shape student experience. As a panel member you will have the opportunity to feedback on a range of topics from what marketing materials should look like, to what a new service should be called. You are invited to complete online questionnaires and also to participate in focus groups and interviews.

All the Panel activities are voluntary – you can choose whether or not you want to participate in any of the tasks.

The Panel also aims to have a membership of students from across the University that is broadly representative of the overall student population.
