Student Hut has been chosen for a long-term research partnership with the Office for Students (OfS).
The strategic project aims to understand the views of key student groups, including applicants, undergraduates, graduates and postgraduates, and measure the impact of the OfS and its projects in England.
The research will focus on students across different ethnic groups, locations and ages to understand the impact of these factors on perceptions of access to/success in higher education (HE) and what value for money in HE looks like.
The initial insights will set a baseline which will be tracked over a number of years to help measure the impact of the OfS and its activities to inform the direction that these might take in the future.
Kas Nicholls, Director, Student Hut Opinion Panel said: “This long term partnership with Office for Students will ensure we better understand and measure the perceptions of students to make a real impact on key issues in the HE sector, such as participation and fair access.”
Student Hut Opinion Panel was chosen because of its unique combination of diversity and engagement alongside the ability to segment the participants into hyper-targeted groups using its unique panel software.
