Student engagement in Quality
Together with ENSA, we are committed to providing and promoting opportunities for students to participate in activities which will influence the quality of learning and teaching at Edinburgh Napier.
Every taught programme is reviewed on a 6-year cycle through a process called institution-led review. Students can contribute to the review of their own programme of study by submitting feedback via their rep to Student-Staff Liaison Committees, by completing student surveys, participating in activities such as focus groups to inform the review, and by volunteering to meet with the review panel on the day of the review. Information about how students can get involved is available here.
Institution-led review is described in detail in the University’s Quality Framework, Section 2b: Institution-led Review
In addition to institution-led review, each School undertakes ‘annual monitoring’ a formal evaluation of the effectiveness of the delivery of modules and programmes within their School. Student feedback gathered during the delivery period must be used to inform the process. Annual monitoring reports form part of the evidence-base for institution-led review.
Annual Monitoring is described in detail in the University’s Quality Framework, Section 2a: Annual Monitoring.
