The Student Experience
We’re committed to providing the best student experience we can. Of course our teaching is high quality, with academic staff who bring together extensive professional experience with cutting edge research. We also have our own dedicated Pastoral Team who have been trained in everything from finance to mental health and can support you whenever difficulties arise. But we go further than that. We want our students to be involved in every aspect of the School and so we introduced our Student Partnership Strategy that enables students to collaborate with us on course design, teaching evaluation and research projects. We even have students acting as mentors to the School Leadership Team to make sure we’re constantly improving the students experience.
Student Support and Opportunities
Your academic studies are important to us, but so is your well-being. The Course Administration and Pastoral Team offer a range of support and are here to help you. Come along to Carnegie Hall G03 for more information.
Placements / Careers
Gaining professional experience is key and so all of our undergraduate courses include placements. But our placements are more than just work experience: our students work in organisations on real projects that have real impact. From honing your teaching skills in a wide range of schools to working for charities on food poverty projects, from working on a social change team to building leadership skills in nurseries, our placements will give you the skills that set you apart in a competitive job market. We’ll also provide you with outstanding support to build your career, helping to develop your professional skills from week one, with sessions on digital identities, networking, entrepreneurialism and interview skills.
