Student & Engagement
“The provider actively engages students, individually and collectively, in the quality of their educational experience.” (QAA & UKSCQA, 2018)
The new Quality Code includes the Core Practice above that institutions
Students can also be engaged in a whole series of wider activities in their time in higher education. GuildHE’s report on students as active citizens could provide a helpful overview.
GuildHE Students’ Union Network
Student engagement is one of the key features of GuildHE members and is prioritised in our strategic plan.
GuildHE runs a network for students’ union officers and staff. It usually meets three or four times a year, including a joint meeting in September with the quality managers network.
The next meeting will be at the GuildHE Annual Conference in Abertay, Nov 20/21.
