The Higher Education Student Voice
Your opinions and needs, often known as ‘Student Voice’ are an important aspect of being an HE student. The Quality Assurance Agency (QAA) for Higher Education suggests that ‘Student engagement is all about involving and empowering students in the process of shaping the student learning experience’. Thus the Student Voice is really important and as such we actively encourage all students to get involved at a range of levels in their learning and in quality assurance, enhancement and management of their course.
You will be given the opportunity to feedback your opinions throughout the academic year via your student representatives, through surveys and from one to one sessions with your lecturers.
You will be asked to evaluate your learning experience on individual modules by completing a questionnaire. This information is then fed through the Annual Monitoring Process for each programme area. These actions are monitored throughout the year, through Committees which have student representation.
