Student Engagement Service


In education, 'student engagement' refers to the degree of attention, curiosity, interest, optimism, and passion that students show when they are learning or being taught, extending to the level of motivation they have to learn and progress in their education.

Different types of engagement could include:

  • Intellectual engagement​
  • Emotional engagement​
  • Behavioural engagement​
  • Physical engagement​
  • Social engagement​
  • Cultural engagement​
