Detailed Information

The Third Term is itself an innovative way of working in higher education, and we are interested in understanding the experiences of students who are taking part. We are looking for a team of student researchers from different subjects who will collect and analyse data on all of the other Third Term activities that are taking place. Building upon work started by student researchers on the pilot Third Term last year, this team will work closely with academics to design creative ways of understanding how the Third Term is experienced, and to report this to both academic and non-academic audiences. This opportunity will be particularly interesting for students from any subject with an interest in creative qualitative research, and those who want experience of exploring innovation in educational and social research.
