Professor Kathleen Armour answers your questions on the future of Education

This academic year UCL has been talking to students and staff about shaping the next five years at UCL and what needs to be done in that time to improve your experience here. A key part of the student experience is your education and in February UCL published the Education Priorities and Programmes discussion paper which proposed four main projects to improve education at UCL.

In March we asked for your questions on the future of education and for your comments on the Education Priorities and Programmes paper.

We put these questions to Professor Kathy Armour (Vice-Provost (Education & Student Experience)), Yasmeen Daoud (Welfare & Community Officer), Ayman Benmati (Education Officer) and Viktoria Makai (Postgraduate Officer) and recorded their conversation for this video:
