Student Charter (1011P13)
Status: Lapsed | Zone: Creative Industries
Passed: 09/05/2011 |
This policy was discussed at the following meetings:
- The work of the 2005 sabbatical team in partnership with the University on the Student Entitlement & Guidance Documents
- The introduction of Student Entitlement & Guidance Documents for Postgraduate Research Students in 2006
- The comprehensive nature of each document, leading to a large combined length
- The national project on student charters, commissioned by the Government department for Business, Innovation and Skills (BIS)
- The recommendation of the BIS report that specifies that “Charters are a joint venture with the Students’ Union and must involve students and student representatives at the outset.”
- The recommendation of the BIS report that specifies that charters “should be kept as short as possible – suggest 2 pages maximum.”
- The recommendation of the BIS report that specifies that “a charter should be seen as a summary document, which provides signposts”
- The Student Entitlement and Guidance documents explicitly detail what is fair to expect of Students and what is fair to expect from the University.
- The Student Entitlement and Guidance documents are especially useful in holding the University to account.
- That a Student Charter should not replace the Student Entitlement and Guidance documents.
- That a Student Charter should act as a ‘signpost’ to the Student Entitlement and Guidance documents.
