Teaching Quality

 

Create a standardised, transparent and enhanced teaching and learning experience:

 

  • An Enhanced Module Choice System with university-wide module fairs in Week 0 and better ‘Rate My Module’ including peer-to-peer advice and feedback
  • Tackling hidden course costs by providing a free minimum of printer credits and more online resources including core texts
  • Continued roll-out of lecture capture ensuring it is available in every module at all times and providing teaching staff with the necessary resources and advice 
  • Equal Treatment for students on joint degrees, years-abroad, 2+2 degrees and distance learners by securing positions on departmental SSLCs and standardising communication processes across the university

 

Study Spaces:

 

Ensure students have substantial and appropriate study spaces:

 

  • A dedicated study space finder app alongside timetable displays outside all rooms letting every student see which seminar rooms are free for use
  • Increased study spaces in existing buildings on campus by co-operating with Estates to install desks and power sockets wherever possible
  • More study spaces in every new building on campus by working together with the university in the consultation stages for buildings such as the new Humanities Building and second library
  • An Expanded Learning Grid with more study spaces and longer opening hours allowing more people to study off campus at more flexible times

Welfare:

Put welfare provision at the heart of student life:

  • Dedicated wellbeing drop-in spaces in every major academic building and the library
  • A new wellbeing centre in the heart of campus providing accessible support and advice regarding student welfare and mental health
  • A student wellbeing officer in each department or faculty across the university and better pastoral training for personal tutors
  • Lobbying for sleeping and relaxation facilities on campus to improve student wellbeing during stressful periods in university life

Access and Equality:

 

Fight for a fairer, more liberated education on campus and beyond:

 

  • Support campaigns against unfair employment practices to improve the working conditions of casual employees on campus – such as your teachers
  • Opposition to all rises in fees as well as cuts in funding, protecting access to higher education for all regardless of their socio-economic background
  • Lobbying for a liberated curriculum free from bias and in constant consultation with students across all university departments
  • Protect International Students’ Rights by providing clarification and support for EU students in light of an impending Brexit and campaigning against extortionate international fees

 

Postgraduate:

 

End the imbalance between the undergraduate and postgraduate student experience:

 

  • More bursaries for post-graduate students to stop the financial barrier to education beyond undergraduate studies
  • Decent pay for post-graduate students who teach to ensure they are fairly-paid for class preparation, teaching and marking of assessments 
  • More study spaces dedicated to post-graduate students in existing and especially new buildings on campus including the new Humanities Building and second library

 

Careers and Future:

 

Broaden the careers advice offered by the university:

 

  • More varied employers at careers fairs by inviting large NGOs and charities alongside corporations
  • Liberation-orientated careers fairs catered to minority groups within the student community – such as LGBTUA+ and BAME
  • Involvement of academic societies in careers fairs keeping fairs relevant by including employers that students want
