Student Inclusion Consultants

Northumbria University is committed to working in partnership with our students to achieve an inclusive experience for all, learning from the ‘experts’ in the current student experience and addressing barriers to student success where these are identified.

Student Inclusion Consultants (SICs) have lived experience, or a strong understanding, of the barriers that our underrepresented students may face whilst at University. Throughout 2022/23, our SICs will work closely with staff across the University to address barriers and enhance the student experience. 


Student Inclusion Consultants have the opportunity to share their lived experience in the following ways:

Student Reviews

Work with staff from across the University to review an element of practice. Examples could include looking at marketing materials, Blackboard sites or Library activities.


Content Development

Develop or review appropriate content with a student inclusion lens. This could be imagery, written or video content that can be used across various platforms.


Inclusive Reciprocal Insight Scheme (IRIS)

Be paired with a University staff member to share insights and support an understanding of the current lived experience of our underrepresented students.


Scholarship Opportunities

Work with academic colleagues and engage with relevant literature to provide an evidence-based insight into the current lived experience of our underrepresented students.
