Representing your Academic Interests
In October Brighton SU presented it’s Student Experience Report to the first University Education & Student Experience Committee (UESEC) of the year. This report is based on feedback that the Students’ Union has collected over the last academic year from various sources including the National Student Survey, Brighton Student Survey, Course Rep feedback, the Students’ Union Question of the Month research as well as NUS (National Union of Students) nationally conducted research.
In the report the Union made 7 key recommendations to the University, which now form our Education Campaign that you can see below. The University have agreed to respond to each recommendation to outline how they plan to tackle each of the issues we raise.
If you want to get involved with the campaign for better education at the University of Brighton, get in contact with Parker, the Union's VP Academic Experience to discuss how you can help!
Our seven recommendations...
Tackle specific low scoring courses
We believe there needs to be specific work done to explore the experience of students on courses that score the lowest for overall satisfaction in the NSS.
The university needs to improve the way students are able to feedback on their course and then make sure they are told about any improvements.
Help students feel part of the wider learning community at the university.
Improve the organisation of courses.
Teaching & Learning
To continue building on the excellent teaching.
Hidden course costs
Gather feedback from students on how much they course ‘actually’ costs.
Fairness in assessment
Tackling the BME gap in results.
