Department level

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 Education Committee (covering undergraduate and postgraduate taught programmes), MPLS Graduate School Committee (covering doctoral programmes). Your divisional representatives can be contacted at Ug-mpls@ousu.ox.ac.uk (for undergraduate students) and Pg-mpls@ousu.ox.ac.uk (for postgraduate taught and doctoral students).

University

At University level, students are represented on the key University decision-making bodies, including Council, by the Oxford University Student Union.
