CAL Student Experience

The College of Arts and Law is committed to supporting you during your journey to university, during your time here as a student, and beyond. Whether you’re an undergraduate or postgraduate, our dedicated Student Experience Team provides a wide range of activities and initiatives designed to enhance and enrich the university experience for students across the College.

Student welcome and transition

Student community

Look out for newsletters, emails and social media posts from your Student Experience Officer about what’s going on in your School.

Student Voice

Find out about how to volunteer to be a student rep

If you have feedback about something academic-related, you should talk to the student reps for your programme who will then raise it at the next Staff Student Forum.  If you have an idea for something new (e.g. an event or an activity), then do get in touch with your Student Experience Officer.

Academic Enrichment

Equality, Diversity and Inclusivity

The College is proud to be launching the College of Arts and Law inclusivity project with the event ‘Pride not Prejudice’ in September 2019.

This event follows on from a series of coffee and chat networking events for new students during Welcome.

More projects are to follow as the year progresses.  Interested in getting involved?  Please email

Schools also run focus groups looking at the experience of students (e.g. BAME, A2B students).  If you would like to express your interest in participating, please contact your Student Experience Officer.
