The use of Focus Groups is a crucial component in our strategic planning process for the Students' Union. By convening diverse groups of students, these sessions enable us to gather firsthand insights and perspectives on various aspects of the Union's functioning.
They will help identify key issues, understand the diverse needs of our student body, brainstorm innovative ideas, evaluate current initiatives, and ultimately inform our strategic decision-making.
We will be hosting these small groups, with a professional facilitator in early February 2024. We are keen to hear voices from across our community, including students, staff and prospective students from local secondary schools.
Each focus group meeting will last around an hour and be held on campus (with options for Teams/ Zoom).
The groups listed below are intended to gather feedback and input from groups of students that we have traditionally struggled to engage with effectively. If you don't fit into one of these groups, please feel free to complete the survey, visit us during Let's Talk week or write to us with your thoughts.
The exact dates, times and location for the focus groups will be released early in the New Year. By signing up to the group, we will be able to keep you informed of more details closer to the time. If you do sign up and wish to remove yourself from the list, you will be able to do so by returning to this page.
