Interim Report: Turbocharging the Future

The interim report of the UPP Foundation Student Futures Commission

The UPP Foundation Student Futures Commission was set up to help the sector navigate through the next academic year, and beyond, as it recovers from the disruption of the pandemic. We hope that this work will enable the sector to get ahead of the curve, based on up to date evidence and analysis about what works and what students want. 

The UK higher education sector is rightly proud of its autonomy and ability to lead itself, and so this interim report does not set out recommendations, but aims to collate the evidence we have seen so far on teaching and learning, student experience, and student mental health, where this relates to the start of term in September 2021. While the majority of the commission’s work is looking into the medium and longer term future, we felt it was important to support the gathering of evidence from across the sector on some of these issues.

We hope that it also provides a starting point for the wider discussions which will need to take place.
