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. Please refer to our Student Partnership Agreement to find out more.


Guidance and information about student engagement in quality is provided by sparqs (student partnerships in quality Scotland).


When taught programmes are reviewed, and new programmes put forward for approval, a panel of academic and professional experts from within and out-with the University is constituted. The panel reads and comments on a set of documentation, then meets with current students (for programme review), and with the programme team before deciding an outcome. 


The University requires that every panel has a full student member. The student panel member will always be from a different subject from the programme under consideration.


Guidance and support is provided by the Quality & Standards team. The documents below provide additional information about what is involved.
