Student Services are constantly monitoring and seeking to improve the services that we provide and student’s comments and feedback are very important to us. In order to improve customer satisfaction Student Services have introduced a Student Services Customer Satisfaction Improvement Plan for academic year 2016/17. 

This action plan has been put together using student feedback received in 2015/16. The Improvement Plan can be found here.

Student Services Initiatives and Developments 2015/16.

Below are some the initiatives and developments that have been implemented in academic year 2015/16 to improve services provided to students:

  • ‘Ask Accomm’ has been available at the Halls of Residence to answer student queries
  • A prayer box has been implemented in the Chaplaincy for staff and students to leave prayer requests.
  • Zara the Pets As Therapy dog is available at various times across the academic year to help reduce exam and assignment deadline stress
