Postgraduate Student-Staff Committee

What We Do

The Postgraduate Student-Staff Committee (PG SSC) meets three times a year to discuss issues that affect all areas of the School of Modern Languages, its postgraduates, and their degree courses - from the availability of books in the Library and Bookshop to the organisation of postgraduate conferences and social events. More importantly, the Committee offers the opportunity for students to initiate improvements wherever possible.

How We Do It

Postgraduate students are invited to represent their courses (as ‘course reps’) at Committee meetings. The Students’ Union organises elections for these positions during the summer vacation. More information about the role of course rep can be found here: 

How You Can Help?

The PG SSC relies on student input, both in terms of the student representatives who attend meetings and in terms of postgraduates contacting PG SSC members with important issues that need to be raised.
In order to represent everybody's interests in the School, mature students, international students, and part-time students are all encouraged to become representatives. Volunteering to be a representative is the best way to get your views heard. Apart from the obvious benefits of it looking great on your CV, the PG SSC is a genuine way to make a difference in the School. Your concerns are listened to and addressed. Moreover, it is a way for you to meet students from elsewhere within the postgraduate community and to get to know your tutors informally.

How To Take Part

If you are interested in becoming a member of the PG SSC, or wish to know more about it, just contact the convenor of the committee, or any other current member. You might also like to contact the Education Unit within the Students’ Union:
You don't have to be a PG SSC member to contribute. Make your views known by contacting committee members directly and they can raise your queries in subsequent meetings. PG SSC members will make themselves known to you and can be approached by email at any time with any concerns, suggestions, and compliments.
