In recent years, we have seen a sharp increase in student numbers and an associated diversification of student profiles across the UK at all taught levels. There is an interest to analyse the current student experience as reported by the student themselves. This includes the learning experience and performance but at the same time places great emphasis on aspects of inclusion, wellbeing and the relevant support mechanisms.
