Staff-Student Liaison Committee

Information on PGR Staff Student Liaison Committee (SSLC) meetings.

The Informatics Graduate School (IGS) is committed to developing the School's PGR experience, in consultation with those registered on our PGR programmes.  In support of this, the IGS  hosts SSLC student representative meetings, with the aim of identifying where things could be improved.  The membership of this group includes the Deputy Director of IGS, PGR student representatives, IGS admin staff, technical and computing staff. 

It is the Informatics Graduate School’s (IGS) responsibility to:

  • Formally communicate to all PGR students the names of their Student Staff Liaison Committee (SSLC) student representatives;
  • Organise SSLC meetings
    • At a minimum, the IGS will organise one SSLC meeting per academic semester and will inform the SSLC student reps of the schedule / dates and times of the meetings.  As much as possible, these meetings will be held as in-person meetings.
    • The IGS will consult with SSLC student reps regarding the agenda for each meeting, and send an invitation and a finalised agenda.
    • Distribute draft minutes (including allocated actions) and follow up on the progress and completion of agreed actions. 
  • Keep the IGS SSLC webpage up to date with current and accurate information.

SSLC PGR Student Representatives

SSLC student reps are a vital channel of communication between the School of Informatics and PGR student community – representing, communicating and giving feedback on School, College and wider University PGR student matters.

The main purpose of the SSLC student rep role is to:

  • Represent Informatics PGRs & help to improve the PGR experience
  • Ensure that the PGR student voice is heard within Informatics (and beyond)
  • Raise awareness of Informatics activities amongst the wider PGR community



College Student Staff Liaison Committee (CSSLC)

The College of Science and Engineering has established the College Student Staff Liaison Committee (CSSLC) to discuss the “big issues” which College or University wide issues. For clarity, these issues are not programme-specific items or concerns, but rather thematic issues which resonate more widely across the College. The Committee is an opportunity to work together with students to address key concerns in an effective way to benefit our student experience and wider College community, and to ensure that there is a dialogue across the College about cross-cutting issues. Please click here for an information page which outlines the remit and operation of the CSSLC. There will be separate meetings to discuss taught matters and PGR matters, with agendas set collectively by students at a pre-meeting (to ensure they are appropriate themes which resonate across the student body).
