The Student Learning Experience (SLE) for Postgraduate Taught Courses/Programmes (2020)

The Student Learning Experience (SLE) is a valueable tool that can be used by students and staff to collect, evaluate, and communicate feedback on postgraduate taught courses and programmes. The SLE was developed in partnership with Student Partnerships in Quality Scotland (sparqs), and was revised by NStEP for the Irish higher education landscape in 2020.

Governance and Student Representation Toolkit (2023)

This toolkit was developed by NStEP to complement the ‘Governance and Student Representation’ online module which can be used to support the work of student representatives. It includes a glossary of common abbreviations and terms, descriptions of common committees and institution staff, an example of a committee meeting agenda and minutes with descriptions included, and a student representative diary and meeting log. Physical copies are also available upon request.
