Education Board

The core function of Education Board is to make decisions on education-related issues, defined similarly to the Faculty Vice Presidents’ remits, which includes but is not limited to the academic experience, assessment and feedback, learning and teaching, libraries and academic services, IT provision, online learning, quality enhancement, research support and employability. Education Board will consider all policies passed in Student Council relating to these or any other education issues.

The Education Board can discuss issues, lobby the university and pass policies.

The Board usually meets 4 times per year, and the next meeting is on TBC. The meeting will take place online. If you would like to attend a meeting of the Education Board, you can contact the Chair.
