Student Development Team

The Student Development team provides a focal point for leadership and oversight for initiatives and activities in support of individual student development across the student lifecycle. The team works closely in partnership with Departments and Faculties to ensure we have in place the best possible opportunities, advice and activities both within and alongside our students’ studies as our students make the transition into and through their educational experience, enabling them to have the study skills and wider personal development opportunities they need to succeed and progress into the next stage of their lives and career.
