Postgraduate Feedback Council - Postgraduate Student Representation from each Department

The Postgraduate Feedback Council is composed of postgraduate representatives in both taught and research degrees from all departments within the University, as well as the members of the Graduate Studies Office, and Faculty Deans. When an issue has been raised at the Feedback Council the Dean can take this item forward into the Graduate Sub-Committee of Academic Council on behalf of the students.

How are the students reps appointed?

Appointments to the Council are made via the Heads of Department or Postgraduate Coordinators within each department. They are asked to nominate a willing postgraduate student who would be available to attend meetings and represent the students in their Department. A call for new members occurs in December each year. It is envisaged that this process will become even more democratic within the Departments, however in order to ensure full representation, the Postgraduate Coordinators/Heads of Department are asked to make nominations where a voluntary election is not conducted. The Council meets twice per semester to discuss issues relating to graduate studies. The student representatives sit on the Council for 1 calendar year. The Deans, the Centre for Teaching and Learning and Graduate Studies Office members are permanent.
