Enhancing students' learning experience
We offer a range of support, advice and guidance to help you continue to enhance your students' learning experience from pre-entry through to graduation. We do this within the context of delivery of the University's Learning & Teaching Strategy, which is underpinned by our approach to quality management which is set out in our Quality Code of Practice. We can help you through a number of routes and activities including:
- one-to-one support
- workshops, courses and development opportunities
- sharing good and innovative practice through events, networking, forums and good practice discussions
- linking to advice and guidance provided by other organisations such as the Higher Education Academy
- development projects, both at institutional and departmental levels
- collating and sharing resources such as open educational resources and learning technologies

Effective and Innovative Learning & Teaching
We can support you in identifying and implementing more effective and innovative approaches to learning and teaching. We run institution-wide development projects that may be of interest to you. These are exploring different ways of enhancing the student experience. Our current projects include:
- Flipping project - enhancing interactivity in the classroom
- LEAP project - enhancing assessment practices
- PriDE project - developing digital literacies
- Shadowing project - experiencing a day in the life of a student
You may also be interested in exploring the range of learning technologies that are available. We can help you identify and implement the most appropriate technologies for your learning and teaching.
We can discuss your learning and teaching requirements with you at any time and work with you to look for other creative ways to enhance your teaching.
Academic study skills
Once students have started their programme of study, we need to support them in the development of higher level skills and insights related to academic learning. This includes:
- understanding the importance of academic integrity (plagiarism)
- developing strong writing skills and mathematical and statistical skills
- improving their academic and professional communication skills
- developing their use of English language - both native and non-native speakers
- skills development for postgraduate researchers
- personal development planning
Browse through the student information to find out how they find their way to study, academic and other support. It is particularly useful to look at the student support and resources available and our virtual learning environment, Moodle.

Staff Student Liaison Committees (SSLCs)
Each year we undertake a number of surveys that provide important opportunities for us to obtain student feedback and identify key areas for action. We also carry out unit evaluations on each programme of study.
We seek to involve students in key quality process and decision-making and our students are now represented on over 90 university committees and working groups. For example, you can learn more about Staff Student Liaison Committees (SSLCs) in our quality code of practice statement QA48.
Placement opportunities in all our courses are an important component of a Bath education. You can find out detailed information on placements and may also be interested in the:
