student engagement

The extent to which students are motivated, passionate and curious about their programme of study, the HE provider community they live and work within and its immediate environs. 

Student engagement can be fostered through a culture of partnership between HE providers and their students. Stronger student engagement is associated with higher levels of retention and lower rates of attrition. The UK Engagement Survey (UKES) measures levels of engagement at HE providers across the UK.
