Our new three-year Enhancement Theme, Evidence for Enhancement: Improving the Student Experience, launched in October 2017. The Theme will consider the information that is available within the Scottish sector to help us understand what we do well and what we could improve. We aim to identify any issues that will benefit from intervention, help prioritise interventions for the student experience, and evaluate the effectiveness of those interventions. This will include reporting on the ways in which the student experience is improving.

Sector engagement with the Theme


Institutional activity

Institutions working in partnership with their students on a range of institutional prioirites.

Collaborative clusters

Institutions working together on shared interests which will add value to the whole sector.

Sector-wide strand activity
