Student engagement is core to the University's way of working. The value placed on student input to decisions is evidenced by the Learning, Teaching and Assessment (LTA) Principles and the Students' Charter. Fundamental to the relationship between the University and its students is the assurance that the student voice is not only heard but that it also plays a central role in decision making through a number of means:
- significant and effective informal networks through which students' views are shared with University and Students' Union members and then channelled through more formal processes;
- formal representation;
- formal student feedback through comments, surveys, etc.;
- student involvement in various quality processes.
Details of the formal student representation system, as agreed between the University and LUSU, are available here.
