The University has established a new Postgraduate Teaching and Learning Committee (PGTLC) to represent the postgraduate teaching experience and to provide recommendations to the University.
In Spring 2018, the University’s Teaching and Learning Committee commissioned a working group represented by the Students’ Union, Careers and Employability, the Graduate School and all five faculties. The working group was tasked with investigating the postgraduate student experience.
The group consulted widely, both within the University and externally, and has developed a number of recommendations around the leadership of masters provision in schools and faculties, the improvement of pre-arrival induction processes, best practice in support for writing the major dissertation or projects, and promotion of careers and employability opportunities.
The University has now set up the PGTLC to continue the efforts of this working group, to implement its recommendations and to represent PGT matters to the main Teaching and Learning Committee.
This committee will be consulting both staff and students on various matters in the months ahead, but if you have any questions or suggestions that you would like to bring to the committee’s attention, please contact them directly via email:
Mark Bradley, Chair of the Postgraduate Teaching and Learning Committee (PGTLC)
