Our three-year Enhancement Theme, Evidence for Enhancement: Improving the Student Experience, launched in October 2017. The Theme will reflect on data 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 to improve the student experience
  • evaluate the effectiveness of those interventions, including reporting on the ways in which the student experience is improving.

The sector will engage with the Theme through many different projects covering a range of activities and topics.
