Built for improvement

UCEM is constantly listening to and reviewing student feedback gathered through surveys, focus groups, student representatives, module evaluations and on the VLE. We use this information to improve our programmes and make enhancements to our student experience. Here are just some of the changes that we’ve made as a response to student feedback:

You said

That assessment deadlines were too close together…

So we have staggered assessment submission dates across modules we anticipate are studied together so they do not fall at the same time. We have created more space in modules to allow for preparation of assessments.

You said

That the amount of directed study time on some modules was challenging…

So we have checked study hours using a study calculator developed by the UCEM Digital Education team to ensure estimated study times are as accurate as possible.

You said

That the required reading was too high for some modules…

We have reviewed the reading requirements for all modules and have focussed on the essential reading and learning activities to support the core knowledge required.
