Changing the way we support our students

Presenter: Lisa Dawson and Mike Grieve

Institution: The University of Edinburgh

Format: Presentation : a presentation for most of the session with time for questions at the end.

Learn more about the new model of student support being implemented at the University of Edinburgh. Feedback from staff, students and external evaluators told us whilst our current model of support is effective in some areas, it doesn’t consistently meet students’ needs and isn’t sustainable for many colleagues. Staff told us about the pressure they face due to increased student numbers and the complexity of the challenges students can face. This new model aims to enhance support for students and relieve pressure on staff, with dedicated support for everyone who chooses to study with us and interdisciplinary teams working together to meet their needs.

Suggested Audience: Staff interested in student support
