Student Voice Group

Student voice champions contribute to University governance over the internet.

Student committee meeting
Since 2018-2019, students from anywhere in the world have been eligible to join the Student Voice Group.

If you are a current student, you can apply to join the Student Voice Group (SVG) as a student voice champion. 

The SVG comments and provides a student perspective on projects and ideas the University is developing. 

While not a representative body of students, it possesses an important advisory function to the University.

In the last two years, the SVG has given the University valuable input on a number of important matters including:

  • The communication of changes to assessment arrangements in summer 2020 in response to COVID-19, and gave the University extensive feedback on the use of online assessment.
  • Suggested improvements to the question set used on a survey of students to evaluate the use of online assessment in summer 2020, in a project led by the Centre for Distance Education.
  • The various stages of development of two online employability modules, the second of which is due for release to students in 2021.
  • Contributed ideas to the research design of the Learning Hours and Learning Strategies Centre for Distance Education project.
  • Brainstorming on the future brand positioning for the University of London.
  • The development of the peer-to-peer wellbeing and mental health support app Talk Campus.
  • The development of online student societies.
  • The recently relaunched alumni ambassador programme.
  • Features of future programme models.
  • SVG members have also been active contributors to the Official Student Blog and have participated in the University of London’s Athena Swan working group.
