Many students may find they have comments and opinions on how they are taught or assessed but do not know how to have these issues raised. The Undergraduate Student and Staff Liaison Committee (SSLC) is a formal channel where students can express their views and opinions on these academic matters. The discussions are focused solely on teaching, learning, and student support issues. The committee is made up of elected student representatives from each degree stream, as well as staff, and usually meet twice a term. You can contact your student representative to have your comments and suggestions discussed in these regular meetings, but there are also other routes. These can include using the suggestion box or Mid-Module Feedback on Moodle (for anonymous suggestions, sent straight to the module leader), emailing firstname.lastname@example.org, speaking with Dr Lynne Bayley, the convenor of SSLC, or potentially a direct discussion with a lecturer when a certain lecturer is concerned.
The student representatives you can contact are:
First Year – Caroline Akamune, Thomas Bolton, Jonas Bouhlal, Sacha Charlton
Second Year – Georgina Bryson, Gabby Han, Shaumica Saravanabavan
Third Year – Zena Choi, Mathew Clayton, David Seow
Fourth Year – Amy Sansom, Alice Partridge
It can also be really useful to contact certain staff with any issues you are struggling with. The first person to contact should be your personal tutor, but you can also talk to Dr David Fox (Senior Tutor), or Lucy Johnson for degree stream help.
