Miriam Amies, Off-Campus Students Project Coordinator, University of Manchester Students’ Union will present on the importance of supporting and engaging living at home students.
The off-campus students’ project was developed 3 years ago after it was identified that retention and achievement levels at university were being affected by whether students chose to live at home rather than move into student housing. This group also intersects strongly with mature students, student parents and student carers who are given their own focus within the project.
The presentation will outline the role and importance of supporting participation and engagement for these students, looking at ways to engage the typically disengaged and provide social spheres for the typically independent student.
