Student as Researchers Project

The Students as Researchers Project funds students to undertake a small research project in collaboration with staff to improve academic practice and the student experience.  One of the themes for this year is ’embedding employability in the curriculum’.  Of the many applications received 12 research projects were approved.  The Student Researchers are supported by Quality Enhancement and Student Success (QESS) throughout the duration of their appointment. Research outputs will be presented at the University’s Teaching and Learning Conference on 19 June 2013 and the work will also lead to a submission to the University’s peer-reviewed Student Experience and Engagement Journal.

Details of each of the projects currently underway are available here.
