‌‌What is the Teaching and Learning Committee?

The aim of the Teaching and Learning Committee is to oversee and provide leadership in all aspects of the undergraduate (UGT) and postgraduate taught (PGT) programme provision in the school. The meetings take place at 3 points in the year (October, February and May).

Student Representatives from all years are encouraged to attend these meetings and play an active role in representing the student body.
