Who are our GOAT team?
The GOAT team are on-the-ground student researchers who collect face-to-face feedback from students on a range of topics. This team is vital in collecting student opinions about their experience here at BU, so we can work with the university to make changes that will benefit students.

What's involved in being part of the GOAT Team?
Before you start your journey as a GOAT member, you begin by receiving essential training where you meet other members of the team and learn face-to-face research skills to be able to go out in pairs and collect student opinions on a set question.
For each project we ask that you complete 2 hours of data collection over two weeks. Projects last for 4 weeks so there's other optional tasks to get involved with beyond data collection such as getting involved with the analysis, report-writing and presenting to a BU Committee.
We will offer more in-depth training on data analysis, producing research reports and presentation skills to any GOAT member that wants to get more involved with all aspects of the research project.
Becoming a GOAT Champion is a unique and fantastic opportunity to develop skills in:
- Confidence in communication
- Clarity in expressing thoughts or ideas
- Analytical skills
- Report writing
- Presentation skills
Plus you get access to the SUBU Leadership Award with a number of workshops available offering personal and professional development as a leader.
