Hello, I am Paul Glennon, Associate Dean Student Experience.
My job is to develop and nurture a strategy to enhance the Student Experience across BIAD. We have introduced the Dean's Proposition and the Faculty Actions, find some of the achievements below!
You said you wanted modern facilities and a replacement for the Gosta Green campus... The University built a 62 million pound state of the Art campus (Parkside)
You said you wanted more connections across the Schools in BIAD... In conjunction with the Student Union, BIAD now has a Faculty 'yourBIADsociety' Facebook Group and a Faculty Twitter account 'BIADNews' with well over 1400 followers...
You said you wanted better Faculty communications with basic information provided... The Faculty has a dedicated landing page on iCity icity.bcu.ac.uk/BIAD with all the frequently asked questions answered...
You said you wanted longer opening hours in Parkside… From the 10th of March Parkside will be open from 7.30 to 22.30 (Monday to Thursday), and from 7.30 to 19.00 (Friday, and Saturday). On Sunday you can access the Library at Millennium Point, which is open from 10.00 to 19.00 during term time... The Faculty has hired students through theOpportUNItyscheme to be Workshop Monitors to extend the workshops opening hour…
SPEAK TO YOUR COURSE DIRECTOR FOR LOCAL PROGRESS IN YOUR COURSE/SCHOOL!
Thanks to this the overall satisfaction in the NSS has increased by 20% over the last three years!
