The Student Experience Network brings together students, teachers, researchers and those working in various capacities of student life and support to find out what the two million full- and part-time undergraduate home students in UK higher education are learning in the widest sense of the word from their experiences within and beyond formally institutionalised study. The student experience encompasses all aspects of student life (academic, social, welfare and support) with the academic imperative at the heart of it.
We aim to provide a platform for the student voice, encouraging critical dialogue about students and higher education. We encourage ideas for events from members of the Network, presentations by students, professionals and academics and suggestions for how to engage those beyond the academy in the student experience. We have partnered on events with: British Sociological Association's Researching Students Study, the National Union of Students and the Unite Group.
We are interested in exploring experiences of students and issues such as:
• Transition • Accommodation and facilities • Student learning • Student development and transformation • Equality and inequality • Diversity and inclusion (including gender, socio-economic status, class, nationality, ethnic group, abilities and disabilities, religion, sexual orientation and issues of intersectionality) • Specific student groups, such as post-graduate taught students; distance students; mature students • Internationalisation and transnational education • Marketisation and funding • Student voice and representation • Student engagement • Surveys, evaluation and satisfaction • Employability
The Network is coordinated by Dr Matthew Cheeseman of the University of Sheffield, and Dr Camille B. Kandiko from the King's Learning Institute, King's College, London.
There are no scheduled upcoming events for this network
