Current AMOSSHE projects

AMOSSHE undertakes a number of national and local projects in order to support the higher education sector in delivering excellent Student Services. Here are the details of the AMOSSHE projects currently underway:


Each year AMOSSHE commissions a range of small projects from member organisations as part of AMOSSHE Insight. AMOSSHE is committed to a research agenda led by our members' priorities, to support your professional development and broaden the evidence base for Student Services in the UK. AMOSSHE is keen to support members' project work in order to share innovative research, expertise and best practice across the Student Services sector, and enable continuing development and improvement. This is the purpose and goal of AMOSSHE Insight: to develop and share insights for the benefit of all members.

2017/18 projects

In the 2017/18 academic year AMOSSHE is supporting two projects that aim to result in a clear benefit to the wider student experience community: for example, sharing research findings, good practice, or practical tools. AMOSSHE especially encourages projects that align to AMOSSHE's strategic themes. Find out more about the call for project proposals.

Resilience toolkit

Resilience Toolkit (opens in a new window)In February 2018 AMOSSHE launched the Resilience Toolkit: an open, online resource bank of research, case studies and practical tools to help Student Services professionals in higher education develop student resilience to stress, anxiety and similar barriers to achievement and success.

The toolkit advocates a positive and proactive approach to student resilience, focusing on what higher education providers can do to develop supportive, enabling cultures for students by making improvements to their physical and social environment.

The project was made possible by funding from Unite Students, the UK’s largest manager and developer of purpose-built student accommodation, who are driven to provide a ‘Home For Success’ for almost 50,000 students across the UK. It builds on the theoretical model published in their Student Resilience: Exploring the positive case for resilience report (May 2017), which explores the positive case for resilience.
