Student Voice

Share your student voice and make a difference

If it’s important to you, it’s important to us.

Whether you want to tell us what is working well or have an idea on how things could be improved, we want to hear about it – the good, the bad and the ugly!

We are proud of our partnership with students and believe that working together is the best way to ensure that students can fulfil their potential and make the most of their time at university.

The time you take to share your views and opinions is hugely appreciated and your feedback will be used to make improvements to all aspects of the student experience.

How can you get involved and make a difference?

There are lots of different ways you can share your student voice during your time at Manchester Met.

National Student Survey

The National Student Survey (NSS) is an annual survey (between January-April) that gives our final year undergraduate students the opportunity to reflect on their experience at Manchester Met and provide feedback about their course.

Internal Student Survey

The Internal Student Survey (ISS) gives our taught students an opportunity to share their views and opinions about their course and units (during the autumn and spring terms), so that any necessary improvements can be made during their time at Manchester Met.

The mid-unit audit

The mid-unit audit is a quick check-in halfway through the unit to see how students are finding the course. This gives tutors the opportunity to make any adjustments to ensure that students get the most from the unit as it is being taught.

Directly to your programme team

One of the quickest and easiest ways for students to share their views about the course is directly to their lecturer. Whether this is face-to-face, over email or at a drop in session, programme teams love to hear what their students think.

Through your Course Rep and/or Students’ Union

The Union helps to make sure students’ voices are heard across the University, including to the highest levels of management through elected Student Officers and at course-level via elected Course Reps.

How your feedback makes a difference

Your feedback helps drive the University to make important and exciting changes to the student experience. Find out more about the latest improvements to life at Manchester Met:

More books, more time and fewer fines

Our Library books now automatically renew every two weeks (until someone else requests to borrow them) and we have also increased the loan allocation to 20 items for all students.

More personalised help and support

The introduction of ‘Count Me In’ (a new way of monitoring student attendance) and investment in learner analytics, will enable us to reach out sooner to any students who may need more personalised support with their studies.

More ways to tell us how your course is going

The mid-unit audit gives students the opportunity to tell us how the unit is going. Tutors can then make any quick adjustments to ensure that students get the most from the unit as it is being taught.

Greater understanding about how assessments are marked

All programmes now include an assessment exercise, which gives students the opportunity to get hands-on experience of how marking works and uses examples of student work to help explain how the assessment criteria is applied.
