End of Year Evaluations: The Student Voice

In this week’s post, Kerry Sorby summarises the recent Level One and Two Review Days and discusses the importance of student feedback…

“I feel valued for my contributions as a student rather than just one of a number on the programme.  Plans for next year include becoming Peer Support and taking my place on the OT Society Committee as the Health and Safety Officer – what can I say? I just love paper work! Fun, fun, fun!! So glad YSJ picked me and that I picked YSJ!”

(Tess Dias, Level One Student Rep)

Students are considered to be active members of a learning cohort here at YSJ.  We welcome feedback on what worked well for students, as well as areas that could be enhanced in the future. We strive as a programme team to provide an exceptional learning experience for all our students.


At the end of every academic year, students are encouraged to share their experiences with staff and review their personal and professional journey over the year. Feedback is gathered through a range of forums: this year we have used Twitter, Moodle and an on-line quiz Socrative, group and individual feedback. We used hashtags #y1review and #y2review on the review days.

 You can follow what happened using our Storify:


We also asked Level One students to use 3 words to summarise their experience of their first year:
