The English Departmental Board and the English Department Postgraduate Matters Committee

All matters to do with departmental teaching, research, practice, and policy go before the English Departmental Board, which meets two or three times each semester and is comprised of all teaching staff and select members of the general staff. The Departmental Board also has places in its constitution for two postgraduate representatives, usually though not necessarily one research and one coursework student. The same representatives would also attend the English Department Postgraduate Matters Committee which meets twice each semester and reports to the Departmental Board. Membership of the Board and the Postgraduate Matters Committee gives you the opportunity to bring issues of concern to postgraduate students to the attention of the department.

Postgraduate students interested in getting involved should approach the English Postgraduate Coordinators for coursework or research.
