Student Experience Commitment 2017/18

SECLogo.pngThe College has been through a period of significant change over the last three years. Following the Governing Body resolution that the College is to close after 2017/18 the pace of this change is bound to accelerate further.
There will be very few students taking modules in 2017/18, which inevitably will make for a different environment for your studies. However, throughout this period the College’s priority is to support you to reach your potential and complete your studies successfully. 

Our commitment to delivering a high quality student experience includes:

  • Remaining at the Kensington campus until October 2018
  • Preserving the academic excellence and integrity of the College and the quality of our awards, with most academic staff remaining in post and with continued research activity and infrastructure
  • Retaining other key academic positions including Deans of Undergraduate, Postgraduate and Research Students, Personal Tutors and Programme Conveners
  • Maintaining a breadth of choice for modules and dissertation topics taught and supervised by specialist staff
  • Continuing supervision of research students by subject specialists
  • Enabling access to the Library until at least summer 2018
  • Providing high quality student support on site, including:
     - Support for health, wellbeing and disability
    -  Academic study skills support
    - Counselling
    - Mentoring
    - Chaplaincy
  • Ensuring availability of other professional support staff, including Student Services and ICT Services
  • Establishing a restructured HSU to ensure you have access to advice, representation and support
  • Providing you with access to the Careers Service in 2017/18 and 2018/19
