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. The review synthesises 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.
