What you need to know

There are currently three formal Committees which have responsibility for the University's teaching and learning agendas. Each includes senior academics, colleagues from Professional Services and the Students' Union amongst its membership, and colleagues from our overseas campuses in China and Malaysia are also represented. 

Each Committee also has its own lead administrator who oversees the organisation of meetings, agendas and shared spaces.

ESEC has overall responsibility for the University's academic quality and standards. In addition, it supports the work of Student Services, Campus Life, Admissions and Student Recruitment.
