Academic Issues

Issue with your academic experience? We can help.

It can be difficult to know what the best course of action is to resolve your problem. Read below our guide to find out who to go to with your concern.



Course Reps listen to feedback from all students on their course and pass this on to senior members of University staff, to make relevant changes.

If you have any feedback about your academic experience—positive or negative—you can pass it on to your Course Rep. They will attend a Student-Staff Forum to share your views, and relay any related actions or decisions made.

Feedback topics can include:

    Library, IT, student support, project work, quality and availability of resources, Academic Support Tutor system, student handbooks, work placements, year abroad, NSS, employability skills.

    Learning and teaching methods, student evaluations, quality of teaching, academic policy, module evaluation.

    Content and quality of programmes and modules, feedback and evaluation assessed work.
