Student Engagement in Higher Education Journal

An international peer-reviewed journal supporting the work of RAISE. Thus the focus is on student engagement, the active participation of students and staff and students working in partnership. SEHEJ welcomes contributions from all staff and students.

We are open for submissions to the fourth and subsequent editions. Please consider submitting a proposal  to the editors in advance of preparing a full submission. New and inexperienced authors are advised to do so, and to consider the Developmental Route as they will then have the support of a mentor to assist them in getting their submission published.



Journal temporarily closed to contributions


The Student Engagement in Higher Engagement Journal is temporarily closed to contributions while we prepare to move to a different hosting service. You can still send work for developmental comment to

We hope to complete this move by February 2019. Thank you for your patience.
