Meet the team

The Student Partner Programme (SPP) is part of the Student Success and Engagement Team at the University which sits with the Division of Teaching, Learning and Student Development (TLSD). You can contact the Student Partner Programme Team if you have any queries around partnership and collaborating with the University, whether through Consultations or Partnership Projects; please do get in touch on

The Student Partnership Team is here to help facilitate projects across the university to recruit and engage a diverse cohort of students to work on a range of different projects. We are also more than happy to help Staff members interested in recruiting Students Partners to work with you on projects.

We offer regular 1:1s and support to ensure you are getting the most out of your partnership for our students. We also provide development opportunities/selective workshops to skill you up even further!

Joining our more extensive Partnership Network will also provide you with the opportunity to find out more about Partnership activity across the University and the chance to join this fantastic network after your project has concluded.
