    Your impact

    Ever wondered what we do with your feedback?

    #SVLwins

    At the start of each academic year, all students will elect a Student Voice Leader to represent their year of their course. These elected student representatives will then attend Programme Voice Groups.

    It’s important to raise any issues or feedback that you have with your Student Voice Leader, so that they can accurately represent your views to academic staff. You can find out who your Student Voice Leader is by logging in to the MDXSU website.

    • Your ideas in action

    Changes to employability support

    In order to accommodate your needs, we're currently hosting our drop-in sessions remotely via phone on 0208 411 6161 or by emailing our MDXWorks team.

    We're available Monday to Friday 10.00am to 4.00pm and can help you with feedback on your application documents, including CVs, cover letters and application forms. We can provide suggestions to help you make improvements and stand out from other applicants.

    Helpful guides can be accessed online in the resources section.

    Changes to learning and teaching

    All undergraduate students now have a named personal tutor who will guide you through your academic studies and help you to use all of the resources within the university to reach your potential. There are scheduled meetings for you and your personal tutor which may be within a tutor group or one to one setting.

    We are currently producing a condensed and accessible guide that will provide all the resources and support available to help you with your learning.

    Changes to the Library

    The Sheppard Library is closed and will not open again until the University decides it’s safe for us to do so, both for students and staff.

    In the meantime, our Library Search will now default to look for e-resources rather than print; the majority of our journals are electronic. We have very big collection of ebooks and we are adding to it every day. You can also suggest a book to let us know which books you're interested in.

    In addition we temporarily have access to a much bigger collection of books from Kortext and Vital Source, as well as various art and design book collections from Bloomsbury. Links to these extra collections have been added to every reading list at the top of the page so you can easily find them.

    Changes to IT support and learning resources

    Following some requested changes from students, we have introduced more software and tools that students can use. From LinkedIn Learning to hone new skills, to Kortext, for free online books. Additionally, The Learning Enhancement team's support is still available online. From numeracy support and academic writing support to speaking to a librarian.

    Changes to timetabling

    We've made important changes around timetabling following on from your feedback. Your timetable is now published in advance of a new academic year so you can plan your schedule better and, once published, the timetables are changed less frequently.

    You're also able to access your timetable through both the MDXapp and myUniHub and if any changes are made you'll receive an email alert letting you know

    Changes to wellbeing support

    Following on some feedback around the fact that students have been feeling isolated, the Counselling and Mental Health (CMH) service are offering online “Connect & Support Groups”. The aim of the groups will be to offer support to those struggling with feelings of isolation, loneliness, diminishing resilience, anxiety and uncertainty. You'll be able to connect with others who may be experiencing similar difficulties or having similar feelings.

    For further information, please email the CMH service.

    There have also been some important changes to our services, and you can find them here.

    Changes to catering on campus

    Many of you wanted more dietary variety to the options available on campus and in MDX House our vegetarian menu is now also vegan-friendly. Vegan pastries are now available in the Quad, Ritterman, the Circle Café and the Grove and four of our outlets in MDX house have Halal and Kosher options. Our smaller outlets also have Halal and Kosher sandwiches.

    We're planning to reduce your overall costs by 10% across our cafés, restaurants and hospitality provisions and are introducing pre-ordering systems to reduce queues, so you can get your food quicker.

    We're running monthly events on the benefits of healthy cooking. These events will be supported by recipe cards and helpful cooking tips to get you cooking fresh and healthy meals

    • Changes to fees and funding

      For the second year running, we're offering a five part instalment plan and a prompt payment discount to our UK/EU Undergraduate students.

      We've also upgraded our processes so you can deal with an individual adviser from the beginning to the end of your query.

    • Changes to transport links

      We're introducing a pilot shuttle bus between Allianz Park and the Hendon campus which will come into operation later this term.
