Student Staff Liaison Committee


Staff Student Liaison Committee - or SSLCs - are committees made up of elected student representatives, called Course Reps, and members of staff called Academic Convenors. They are student led and provide an area for students and staff to discuss ideas and solve problems connected with teaching, learning and student support. SSLCs allow students to have a say on their course, their department, and their resources. They also provide an opportunity for the department to consult with students and receive feedback on new or amended initiatives proposals. Students are elected to the position of course rep by their peers, and represent their course and year in the SSLC. Three meetings are usually held in Terms 1 and 2, with a further two in Term 3.

There is one overall SSLC for all the Global Sustainable Development degree courses. This will include, where possible, a representative from each joint degree course, as well as single honours GSD.

The SSLC in GSD will also act as a forum to raise ideas that you may wish to ask for funding towards group projects, workshops, attendance at academic events, multi-media projects, or even improvements to your common room. If you have any ideas in this regard, or wish to raise an issue concerning a particular module, a degree programme or any other departmental issue, please contact one of your SSLC representatives or fill out the Contact Form.

In addition, student representatives can attend and participate on the relevant SSLCs of their partner subject departments. For more information about how SSLCs operate across the University, please click here.
