Our three-year Enhancement Theme, Evidence for Enhancement: Improving the Student Experience, launched in October 2017. The Theme reflected on data that is available within the Scottish sector to help us understand what we do well and what we could improve. It aimed to identify:

  • any issues that will benefit from intervention
  • help prioritise interventions to improve the student experience
  • evaluate the effectiveness of those interventions, including reporting on the ways in which the student experience is improving.

Our Theme evaluation is now complete. Explore the report to find out how the Theme contributed to the development of a more evidence-informed culture within the higher education institutions in Scotland. We have also published a summary booklet aimed at those interested in enhancing the student experience and evaluating the impact of this work.
