Student advisory group

The student advisory group provides Open Polytechnic with a student perspective on our products and services. It also acts as a sounding board in the development of new ideas that may affect students.

Advisory group membership

The group may consist of up to 12 students at any one time. These students contribute to the group through an online forum and occasional on-campus meetings with relevant Open Polytechnic senior managers and the Open Polytechnic Council.

Members are appointed for an initial two-year term, but may be reappointed for a maximum of three terms.

Members are selected on the following criteria:

  • Having an interest in distance education
  • Currently students who will have been enrolled with us for at least 24 weeks at the time of appointment
  • Show in the nomination form their qualities and skills that will enable them to contribute to the Open Polytechnic Student Advisory Group.

For more information about membership of the group and how the group works read the terms of reference
