Worcester Business School (WBS) responded pro-actively to the University led changes to the StARs system and the introduction of Institute Reps. The move to City Campus flagged up the possibility of a period of isolation and detachment for the students. Staff therefore took a pro-active approach in ensuring that the student voice was heard loud and clear. WBS therefore instigated a system whereby there would be a dedicated academic contact for the undergraduate StARs irrespective of their course of study. The University actively encourages feedback from students so we are keen to ensure the results of this feedback are relayed back to the other students, effectively closing the loop. This session will outline our approach taken since 2010 in an attempt to avoid any bottlenecks in future communication. It is envisaged that this session will result in a portfolio of good practice for dissemination across Institutes.
