Committees influence the overall direction of University policy. Most of our committees and sub-committees feature student members who enjoy full membership status and voting rights. Student membership of committees normally lasts one academic year, and is renewable for up to a maximum of two years.

Student group working in different ways
Most of our committees and sub-committees feature student members who enjoy full membership status and voting rights.

Committee members come from the University of London and our member institutions, the wider higher education sector, and the student body. Committees review current policies and practices, and consider proposals for modification and change.

Papers and minutes from most committee meetings are published on our website, making them available not just to committee members but to all students and other stakeholders. You can find these in our Central University administration section.

The application and appointment process for student members of committees takes place every July and August. All committee meetings are held in central London. The University pays for the travel expenses of its student members. To ensure that these costs, which are paid for from your tuition fees, are managed carefully we welcome applications from students who live a commutable distance from London and able to travel to London in a convenient and cost-effective way.

Read reflections by student members of our committees on the Official Student Blog.
