Authors

Abbi Flint, Independent HE Consultant, Hannah Goddard, Ellie Russell, The Student Engagement Partnership.

Summary

The findings from this small qualitative study, conducted by TSEP, in partnership with Dr Abbi Flint in 2017, provides rich insights into current perspectives of providers and students’ unions on their student academic representation systems, and indicates many fruitful avenues for future research and dialogue. The study was interested in current perspectives on their role, value and impact, and understanding how these systems have evolved in the context of developments in student engagement theory, policy and practice. The study should be able to complement any related work being undertaken which explores how students might be able to undertake research and scholarship activities as part of their academic representation roles.
