Feedback on student work

Feedback is a key part of the learning process. Assignment feedback lets us know what we did well and what we could improve on and how to do well in the future. The University takes feedback very seriously and, along with the Students’ Union, have developed a Feedback Policy and Student Guide to Feedback.

These documents identify seven key principles about what makes good feedback:

  • Constructive and supportive
  • Clear and accessible
  • Embedded
  • Timely
  • Transparent
  • Goal-referenced
  • A dialogue

They also identify standards and responsibilities of academic staff, students and faculties in relation to student feedback.
