Student Academic Engagement and Wellbeing Policy
The University monitors students’ engagement on their programmes in order to quickly identify those who may be experiencing difficulties. This enables us to offer more timely interventions to support students with any academic, wellbeing or welfare issues that may be inhibiting engagement.
Students use the digital engagement tool, Check-In, to register attendance in their teaching sessions. Where there are repeated low levels of engagement, departments/schools should follow the Student Academic Engagement and Wellbeing Procedure:

Any University staff member who interacts with students, regardless of their role, may be called upon to offer help and advice. You are not expected to know the answer to every question or provide counselling but you should be able to signpost the student to the appropriate support services.
The guidance here will help you direct students to the right specialist advice and support at the right time.
The Taught Student Supervisor Resource provides information, guidance and suggestions to help you with your role.
