Student Staff Liaison Committees

News and events

Our news and events section contains the latest information about our research, publications and conferences, as well as the activities of our staff and students.

Our Student Staff Liaison Committees are a forum for you to voice opinions and raise issues related to any aspect of your studies and experience in our School. Our Undergraduate Student Staff Liaison Committee (USSLC) and Postgraduate Student Staff Liaison Committee (PGSSLC) represent undergraduate and postgraduate students respectively. Committees meet once a term and the minutes are received at our next School Meeting.

The Students Union is responsible for managing the recruitment of course reps, but the School plays an active role in advertising the opportunity. Our USSLC is also asked to elect at least one of its representatives to attend School Meetings and School Education Committee meetings.

You can read our Student survey results on this page.
