Other ways to Have Your Say!
There are many other opportunities for you to comment on your student experience throughout the year - you can:
• if you would like to give informal feedback or would like to ask a question about your time here at Staffordshire University contact your Student Guidance Advisor based in your Faculty/School
• talk to your personal tutor
• the Students' Union is here to support you throughout your University life. If you have a problem with any part of your student experience and would like support in getting your views heard and making change happen, tell us what you think using our online feedback form
Student Academic Representatives (STARs)
STARs ensure your student voice is heard. They are a vital link between you, the University and the Students' Union
STARs are there for you to feedback on your course and to voice the views and opinions of students at meetings with key members of staff

Use your Student Voice after you've Graduated
The Destinations of Leavers from Higher Education survey (DLHE) provides information on what our students* are doing 6 months after Graduating. (*some exceptions apply)
Staffordshire University, along with every other Higher Education provider in the country, collects this data and reports it to the Higher Educational Statistics Agency (HESA). The survey results are made publically available and help to inform prospective students when comparing Universities. For more information on the survey please visit the Careers Centre website
Subject tutors will ask you to evaluate your learning experience on their modules by completing a questionnaire at the end of the module. You will also be asked to complete a questionnaire at the end of the year about your general experience as a student on a particular award
This information is then fed through the Annual Monitoring Process which results in actions at Award, Faculty and University level. These actions are monitored throughout the year, through Committees which have student representation
Appeals and Complaints
We recognise that there may be occasions when our feedback process is not sufficient to deal with a specific issue. For this reason we have a formal University Complaints Procedure (PDF, file size: 97.55KB) .
Before submitting a formal complaint, we would suggest that wherever possible, you take the opportunity to resolve your grievance informally at a local level, by contacting your Student Guidance Adviser within your Faculty/School
