This is a really good question, and one that I briefly mention on my Surge interview. I think there are a number of 'conventional' ways to measure value for money when it comes to the University of Southampton. Quality of teaching is the first obvious one, this is measured to some extend in the teaching excellency framework (a government metric of teaching in HE institutions) and other such metrics. For me to work towards something though it is much more important for me to focus on student satisfaction, how happy are students with what they are being taught, are they achieving what they are expecting and if not why not. I would simply do my best to ensure students are getting the most out of their education here, and help the other sabbatical officers (such as VP Activities) ensure that the extra-curricular societies and clubs that we run are filling out the rest of the tuition fees that we all pay each year.
