Student Inclusion Consultants

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. Our SICs work closely with staff across the University to address barriers and enhance the student experience. 


There are four main workstreams to the SIC scheme:
  • Student Reviews - SICs act as a critical friend to University staff to review an element of practice and address barriers to inclusion
  • Content Development - SICs can review or contribute to written, audio or video content based on their experience of being a student at Northumbria 
  • Inclusive Reciprocal Insight Scheme (IRIS) - SICs can engage in a reciprocal mentoring programme with a senior member of University staff
  • Scholarly Opportunities - This can include presenting at internal and external events, conferences and symposiums
