Student Success Framework Series Review and Redesign: Student Engagement through Partnership

As part of our review and redesign of the Student Success Framework, this literature review and associated outputs focus on Student Engagement through Partnership.

'Student Engagement through Partnership' forms part of Advance HE's review of the Student Success Framework and centres around a literature review. This will be a review of the literature from 2017-2022, synthesising evidence about student engagement through partnership and its demonstrable impacts on students’ outcomes and experiences in higher education.

The review by Northumbria University focuses on peer-reviewed journal articles about student engagement through partnership, with an emphasis on partnerships that impact students beyond just the partners themselves.

Associated outputs include a literature review, blog, podcasts, webinars, and summits.

The literature review discussed the most recent research under the heading of one of three main categories:

  • demonstrable impact for the cohort,
  • emerging impact for the cohort, and
  • emerging impact for the partner.

Articles that were on the topic but outside of the scope of this review were also acknowledged in a fourth broader category.

The literature Review will provide a student perspective on the findings, and the review ends with some suggestions for policymakers and leaders, researchers, teaching staff, and students.
