The Student-Staff Committee (SSC) serves an important purpose in promoting student feedback and interaction with the degree course and module structure by providing a link between lecturers and students. Over the course of the year we will have meetings between myself, representatives from each stage of the degree programme, and the staff, providing a forum for suggestions, advice and feedback from both sides.
To this end, we need volunteers each year from all Years to join the committee, and a Course Secretary to assist in the organisation of meetings and changes. These positions are open to anyone, including students of Combined Honours, and require you to act as a voice for the views of your fellows, allowing you to gain valuable skills in presentation, debate, and engagement with peers and senior figures in the university.
For updates on who your student representatives are this year, please check the noticeboard in the common room, or contact the staff-student liaison officer, Dr. Stephen Overy Stephen.Overy1@newcastle.ac.uk
