Student Voice Groups (SVGs), formerly known as Student Staff Liaison Committees (SSLCs), are made up of elected student representatives and members of staff. They provide an accessible arena for students to discuss with staff issues connected to teaching, learning and student support. They also provide an opportunity for the academic department/school/centre to consult with students and receive feedback on new proposals.
All SVGs are guided by the following principles, which aim to ensure that SVGs:
 SVGs are not the place for students to air their personal grievances
 The Student Members must be the official Representatives of the Department(s) elected through the Students’ Union.
The policy is reviewed annually by Senate and/or an appropriate Senate sub-committee to ensure it remains fit for purpose and continues to meet effectively the needs of students, the University and the Students' Union.
Policy update approved by AQSC 2022. Approved by Senate July 2018. Previous policy approved by Senate July 2014 (replaced by the policy as detailed above).
