staff-student-liaison committeeThis committee (known generally as the SSLC) is the student discussion forum of the Flexible Combined Honours (FCH) degree programme.

It is an extremely important part of the degree.

As a student, through the SSLC you can:

  • influence how the degree is run
  • suggest changes to anything connected with the degree
  • raise concerns about your teaching departments
  • comment on the personal tutoring system
  • etc.

In short, any issues which concern you can be taken up with the SSLC.

There is space on the SSLC for most subject areas and years to be represented - there is no specified maximum size to the committee. An invitation to become a rep is sent out to all FCH students by e-mail at the start of each academic year. Current student reps are listed below.

The SSLC is chaired by a student rep, who is usually nominated and elected at the last meeting of the academic year, to serve for the following year.

The SSLC has a secretary, who is nominated and elected at the first meeting of the academic year.

One or more members of the SSLC attend the FCH Board of Studies to give direct student-informed input into discussions.

SSLC representatives on the FCH Board of Studies present relevant matters from the SSLC as an agenda item of the Board's meetings.

The minutes of SSLC meetings are sent to all FCH students by e-mail and are also forwarded to the FCH Board of Studies and the Guild of Students.

One or more SSLC members represent FCH students at appropriate Guild meetings and liaise with relevant Guild officers.
