Project aims and objectives

Research undertaken for the online Module Selection and Enrolment Project established that the student experience for Flexible Combined Honours students differs from those on standard module diets, and we currently have systems which could deter students from the flexible route, or from taking modules out of their home School. 

The employability agenda suggests that we should be facilitating student modularity and we certainly need to understand any inhibitors to students who identify modules outside their School which would enhance their employability or encourage their retention. There has been a 25% increase in modules taken outside the home School which suggests an appetite for this option.

The scope of the review and the planned approach has been determined following discussions with key stakeholders.
