Student Voice

Share your opinions with us so we can make your EHU experience better.

We’re here to help you achieve and succeed and we need your help to do this. Throughout the academic year, we’ll ask you to give us feedback on your experiences so we can understand what we’re doing well and where we can make things better. See below for ways to get involved.

Ways to help us improve

Student Voice Survey: Course feedback

When? Semester 1 and Semester 2, each year.

Course feedback provides an opportunity for you to comment on your course experience, anonymously.

Teaching staff will respond to your feedback and let you know about any changes made during the course, usually in a subsequent class and/ or electronically.

Student Voice Survey: Module feedback

When? At the end of each module.

A short, anonymous survey which gives you the opportunity to rate each module and tell us what has gone well and any suggestions you may have.

Feedback is used to shape future modules you may take, as well as improve the module you just completed for future students. Changes will be communicated to students who take the module in the future.

  • Black, Asian and Minority Ethnic Students
  • Care Leaver, Care Experienced and Estranged Students (CEES)
  • Disabled Students

The discussions we have help steer the support we offer to our students, and in some instances, results in students collaborating on projects with us. The Widening Access and Participation Team (who manage the panels) communicate actions taken via the Your Voice Counts webpages.

There are a variety of other ways you can share your feedback with the Students’ Union (an organisation which is independent from the University). These include Digi-Rep, Your Ideas, Q&A Sessions on Instagram with your Elected Officers and Digital Student Consultations. For more information, visit the Student’s Union online.

Feedback will be shared with the University for consideration, ideas will come to life via the elected officer team output and publicised over social media.

Students’ Union: Course Reps

When? Ongoing

The Students’ Union trains and supports Student Course Reps across the University to gather course feedback from their peers which is discussed at departmental Staff Student Consultative Forums (SSCFs). This feedback can be escalated to programme boards and Faculty boards where senior University staff will have sight of it.

Issues raised by Student Reps at SSCFs are actioned by the faculty and changes are communicated back to students via the Student Reps. Ongoing issues can be escalated to the Elected Student Engagement Officers.
