Read what student representatives have to say about their role:
'Following my election at the end of 2010, I have spent the last 18 months as the student representative on the Academic Audit Committee (AAC). The primary responsibilities of the AAC are to implement and review a rolling programme of audit activity to ensure that policies and procedures are fit for purpose and influenced by good practice. From a personal point of view being part of the committee has provided me with two great opportunities. Firstly, as an existing ifs University College student I have been able to ensure that the committee's focus remains strongly aligned with the student perspective. Secondly, it has allowed me to develop my own experience and understanding of how such a committee works, which I have no doubt will be invaluable in the development of my own career.'
Matthew Juniper (Academic Audit Committee) 'I feel privileged to be a student representative, acting as a vital interface between the students and ifs University College.'
Robert Binns (Level 6 Programme Focus Group)
ifs University College strives to improve the student experience and acknowledges the importance of considering the student perspective. Student involvement in quality assurance is also a focus of the higher education sector generally and has been highlighted in the new UK Quality Code for Higher Education.
