Student Experience Projects Team and Communications and Engagement Team

The Student Experience Projects Team (SEPT) aims to continuously improve the student experience, enabling our students to make the most out of their time at the University. We deliver regular activity as well as undertaking commissioned projects - some examples are listed below. Our work involves liaison and collaboration with other corporate services, academic schools and the Guild of Students. 

The Communications and Engagement Team (CET) works with colleagues across the University to improve student communications and make information timely, relevant and accessible. The team also co-ordinates Academic Services staff communications, including sharing University news and opportunities to take part in a variety of projects.
