UCL ChangeMakers’s support for departments with poor student satisfaction ties student partnership work for educational enhancement into institutional quality assurance mechanisms. It began in 2015, with students collaborating with the 20 departments with the lowest overall student satisfaction scores in the National Student Survey (NSS)[i] to enhance their assessment and feedback practices. It resulted in an increase of 5.2% in the NSS scores for assessment and feedback in those departments, compared to 3% for UCL as a whole. Students who participated had a positive experience, despite working in an environment where departments were required to participate.
