In the United Kingdom, the higher education landscape has undergone a transformation since the late 1980s as seen in the "massification" of higher education and the "quality revolution". These changes have resulted in an increased sense of accountability, to principal stakeholders: the government, the taxpayer and students themselves. This paper looks at the structures for student involvement in governance in the UK higher education system, the relationships between student unions and these structures and the role of student feedback questionnaires. © 2011 European Higher Education Society.
