Student Engagement, Evaluation and Research (STEER)

Shaping the student experience

What we do

Student Engagement, Evaluation and Research (STEER) supports the delivery of our university strategy, Transforming Lives, and the needs of our learning community. We do this through the generation and use of evidence-based research to identify and inform the development and evaluation of effective practices that enhance our students' engagement and their experience. This includes the collection and analysis of student and sector information, evaluations and surveys, as well as direct student engagement activity at all levels of our formal and informal structures.

We support the overarching drive for a transformative student experience through evidence-based research to inform decision making. We use evidence-informed approaches to student engagement to create and share knowledge and good practice, and we evaluate the real impact of activities intended to deliver excellence by applying new and established research methodologies working across the university community and in the wider sector.
