University of Sunderland adopts Aspire Engage for its StudyPLUS scheme

JS Group is delighted to announce that the University of Sunderland has selected Aspire Engage to manage and deliver its StudyPLUS scheme.

With the new StudyPLUS scheme, the University is providing undergraduates each year with funds to select and acquire learning resources that will support their study and success. In keeping with its commitment to widening participation and being “a university where students want to study”, Study PLUS will provide practical assistance to students from the day they arrive and all through their course.

JS Group’s Aspire Engage solution will manage the scheme, provide on campus support to drive student engagement and operate an online student store making available a wide range of learning resources. In addition, Aspire Engage also provides actionable analytics to help track the impact of the scheme and to inform scheme development.
Commenting on this new adoption of Aspire Engage, Peter Gray, Chairman and CEO of JS Group, said:

“We are delighted to be working with the University of Sunderland on their StudyPLUS scheme. We worked together on a successful pilot and we look forward to continuing to work with the University on driving student engagement and on making StudyPLUS a great success.”
