Student Experience


The College of Social Sciences is lucky to have one of the most extensive Student Experience teams at the University of Birmingham. Our mission is to work in partnership with students to empower you to get involved, achieve your goals and grow at university.

These are our priorities:

  • Feedback - We believe that students should be partners in their learning and have a say in their experience at university.
  • Community - We believe that every student, no matter their background, should feel welcome and included at their university.
  • Development - We believe that university expands your horizons. We're here to give students the opportunity to build useful skills and develop themselves as people.
  • Communications - We believe in the importance of keeping students informed on the things that matter to them in ways that are useful and engaging

If you have any questions you can email our team inbox or make a suggestion through our Suggestion Box.

Student Experience Officers


Who are we?

Student Experience Officers are permanent members of staff who create and signpost extracurricular opportunities for students to make the most of university as well as empowering students to improve their academic experience.  We work within each School and across the College and cater to both undergraduate and postgraduate students. 

What to expect from us

You can expect Student Experience Officers to be friendly, helpful and approachable. They are often considered to be a bridge between students and the School.

Key information for staff members: Please let your local Student Experience Officer know of any initiatives that relate to their remits, they can provide you with data on what works best for certain demographics of students, knowledge of what's happening across the University and even some funding. Please also let them know of any events/activities as they can include them in newsletters.

Key information for students: We are here for you! If you have any ideas for how we can improve your university experience then please let us know, we are always happy to hear from you.
