Southampton Business School is committed to providing an excellent educational experience for our students, and to support our staff in their efforts to achieve this. The Education Development Office (EDO) is a small team of 3 permanent staff which plays a key role in this, working in partnership with our lecturers and students. We also bring in undergraduate, postgraduate taught and postgraduate research students to work with us during the year.
We work with all staff to sustain and improve the student experience within and outside the curriculum. We also offer undergraduate and postgraduate peer support schemes, which help new students transition to study at university, or adapt to life and study in the UK.
We seek to identify opportunities to enhance the student experience generally, and have developed and refined study skills and language support, and specialist research skill support for students preparing their dissertations.
Finally, we seek developmental opportunities for staff in their education-related work and to support their professional development. Student feedback is very important here, as are both individual and School needs, and we aim to provide suitable resources and sessions, and to learn from best practice in the School and sector.
