Number 1 for student experience… and solidarity

We are very pleased the University has won the THE Number 1 for Student Experience award. It’s significant that Sheffield has won it as this is a University with a campaigning activist students union which has strongly supported the industrial action which staff have undertaken this year, while the survey was being done. The support from students during our dispute was great and very welcome. We are proud to have been working in solidarity with the Students Union, rejecting the view of students as ‘customers’ and welcoming them instead as part of our learning community and future colleagues.
