The active participation of students in the University's quality assurance and enhancement processes is an essential and valuable component in maintaining and improving the quality of learning opportunities. The evaluation of student opinion and appropriate response to the results is a key indicator in the University's processes for the assurance and enhancement of academic quality and is a required element of the evidence base for the Continuous Monitoring and Improvement process and for periodic review.

Both at the institutional and local level, the University and the Students' Union work in close partnership in all aspects of evaluating and responding to student opinion, recognising that such active collaboration is fundamental to our joint commitment to improve the quality of learning opportunities for students.
