Student Reviewers

What is a Student Reviewer?

Student Reviewers are students who have volunteered to ensure new and current courses meet the needs of students.

After attending training, they are invited to participate in scheme and periodic scheme review approval panels. Here they review documentation and ask questions (alongside University staff) to help make sure the expected and actual experience of students on new and existing courses is consdiered.

Why should I become a Student Reviewer?


We believe that the student voice matters most and work to ensure students views, needs and concerns shape the University and Students’ Union.

As a student reviewer you get to see behind the scenes of how new or current courses are created and developed here at Aberystwth! The role may particularly suit students who are looking to develop new and existing skills relating to research, critical thinking, reflection, analysis, diplomacy and meeting skills or those who simply want a greater understanding of the University, its quality structures and processes.

By becoming a Student Reviewer, you will have been chosen based on your skills and experience to feedback on the experiences of students.
