Graduate Staff-Student Committee
Meetings in 2022-23
Wednesday 30 November 2022 | Wednesday 8 March 2023 | Wednesday 14 June 2023
- The Committee is a forum for graduate students and departmental staff to discuss matters of concern to students in a structured environment.
- Suggestions and comments from students are welcome: any student wishing to put an item on the agenda of the committee should contact the Graduate Tutor.
- The Committee typically meets three times per year: towards the end of the first term, in the late spring, and in early summer.
It is chaired by the Graduate Tutor for research students. The Head of Department, the MA Tutor, and the Departmental Tutor are ex officio members. All PhD students are invited, as are representatives from each of the MA programmes (Classics and the Reception of the Classical World, full-time and part-time). In practice any PG student who would like to attend is welcome to do so.
Draft minutes are circulated by email after each meeting, and after correction are sent to all staff and graduate students, and placed on the postgraduate Moodle site.
The minutes of previous meetings are kept by the Graduate Tutor and the most recent ones are placed on the Postgraduate Handbook Moodle site. Students are welcome to look at these at any time.
