There is student representation at department, division and University levels.
All students at every level of each course will have access to representation at department level. Each department in MPLS will have:
- A staff-student committee for two way dialogue and consultation. This may be known as the Joint Consultative Committee. Typically there will be one committee for undergraduate students and one for postgraduate students. There may be staff-student committees for individual MSc courses.
- Student representatives who are members of the teaching or academic committee where decisions are made by the department on your course
At divisional level, there is a Graduate Joint Consultative Forum
There is a student representative from each department on this committee, as well as the MPLS student representative (see below) and OUSU representatives (see below).
Students are also represented on the key decision making bodies in the division: MPLS Divisional Board (covering broad strategy for research, education, infrastructure and finance), MPLS Academic Committee (covering undergraduate and postgraduate taught programmes), MPLS Graduate School Committee (covering doctoral programmes). Your divisional representatives can be contacted at Ugemail@example.com (for undergraduate students) and Pgfirstname.lastname@example.org (for postgraduate taught and doctoral students).
At University level, students are represented on the key University decision-making bodies, including Council, by the Oxford University Student Union.
OUSU offer a range of training opportunities for course representatives. Contact: email@example.com
