Project Themes



Academic skills development

Transitioning to university and developing academic skills can be challenging for students.

In the School of Mathematical Sciences, they’ve set up a Peer Assisted Study Support (PASS) scheme, where senior students facilitate tutorials for first years to help them develop their skills.

Maths students talk about PASS


Learning for employability

As the job market grows more competitive, the time students spend in university needs to equip them with the right skills for the workplace.

In the School of Pharmacy, change agents have developed a peer support scheme, helping hundreds of students to prepare for clinical exams.

Pharmacy students discuss mock OSCEs



Programme and module review

Student input and feedback is vital to ensure that teaching and learning needs are being met.

In the School of Biosciences, a programme review conducted by change agents has already influenced curriculum restructuring.


Assessment and feedback review

A large part of learning comes from being fairly assessed and getting constructive feedback.

Change agents in the School of Life Sciences have conducted research into student views of assessment. Their recommendations to the School are helping shape more effective feedback processes.



Technology in teaching and learning

This might involve introducing new technologies or ways to use technology to improve the student experience. 

In the UK and China, change agents have developed online resources to help exchange students transition into new, foreign learning environments.


Sustainable practices in the University

Making teaching and learning practices more environmentally friendly can make a huge difference in reducing the University’s eco-footprint.

In Architecture, change agents are conducting a study of printing with a view to developing solutions to reduce excessive consumption.
