Student Insight Panel

What is the Student Insight Panel?

As a current student of HWU there will be times when we want to gather your feedback and opinions to help us learn about the student experience here. The Student Insight Panel is your opportunity to contribute to a number of different initiatives that come up throughout the year. This could be:

  • Providing feedback on your university journey 
  • Evaluating key messaging and communications initiatives
  • Providing feedback on campaign ideas or new and existing programmes
  • Testing new areas of our website or new apps

Why should I join?

In addition to helping HWU improve our processes for yourself and all students, we will offer incentives to thank you for your time. 

It’s a great way for you to earn a little extra. Focus groups will usually be paid (directly or with vouchers) and surveys will be incentivised with voucher prize draws.

What’s next?

To join our student panel, you must be a current student of HWU (this could be foundation, undergraduate, postgraduate or online) from any of our campuses. We also ask that you are open to participating in projects regularly.

Once you have signed up to the panel, we will contact you when we have a suitable project. We will normally select on a first-come first-serve basis.
