Here at St George’s, University of London, we value and actively encourage all students to share their experiences, perceptions and ideas of how we might improve every aspect of the educational journey.
We gather student opinion on learning and teaching via the student online teaching survey. We ask for our students’ views on the learning environment, student support and learning resources via the student experience survey and, in the final year of study, via the National Student Survey (NSS).
Our postgraduate students are invited to complete the Postgraduate Taught Experience Survey (PTES) or the Postgraduate Research Experience Survey (PRES).
We meet with our students to discuss the results of these surveys in meetings called student-staff liaison groups. At these meetings, we develop actions plans that are subsequently monitored by the student experience action group (SEAG).
We feedback the actions taken through multiple communication channels: the student newsletter, ‘You Said, We Did’; poster, banners and digital screens, and via the Student Union social media accounts.
At St George's we use a variety of surveys to capture the students' views on multiple aspects of their programme/ course experience.
These groups generate information that can be used to action plan and subsequently enhance the student experience.
Student engagement at St George's refers to students being proactively involved in both governance and pedagogy.
