The Higher Education Academy (HEA) is looking for 15 national student advisers to join their new Student Advisory Forum to guide them on aspects of our work that directly affect students and suggest ways of working with them. The Student Advisory Forum will advise the HEA on issues in higher education that matter to students such as teaching, the curriculum and how students are assessed.
In turn, the student advisers will gain valuable experience of working with a national organisation to shape our work with universities and colleges to improve the student learning and teaching experience and your expenses will be paid.
The scheme is open to any students who are studying in higher education at undergraduate or postgraduate level, UK (home) or international, part-time, full-time or distance learning, or through college-based higher education, who:
· can demonstrate an active interest in improving teaching, HE and the student experience;
· can assimilate information and experience to advise on our work;
· are able to commit to preparing for and attending three meetings in York over a period of 18 months.
Deadline for applications: Sunday 10 February. To find out more visit: www.heacademy.ac.uk/student-advisory-forum
