Student Quality Reviewers

Join staff on a panel to make assessment

To ensure education at UCL continues to meet our high standards, we regularly hold review panels.  Student Quality Reviewers sit on the panel alongside staff and are an essential part of the assessment process. Students improve different academic practices by providing feedback and analysis from a student perspective. 

The Student Quality Reviewer scheme lets you influence the following areas of UCL: 

  1. An academic department, by acting as a Student Reviewer for an Internal Quality Review; which is a two-day review of a department. Each department has an Internal Quality Review every five years. 
  2. Teaching, by acting as a Student Reviewer of Teaching Practice. You'll work with teaching staff to analyse and discuss their teaching practice. 
  3. New and incoming programmes at UCL, by acting as a Student Reviewer on the Programme and Module Approval Panel
  4. How departments use student feedback and data to improve, by acting as an Annual Student Experience Review (ASER) Facilitator. You'll make sure the student perspective is considered in action and development plans, and recommendations for change. 
  5. The inclusivity of the curriculum in departments, by acting as a Student Curriculum Partner. You'll give a student view on how teaching can include more diverse perspectives.
