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.
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.
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.
Students have the opportunity to contribute to discussion and decision-making across a number of areas including the student lifecycle, learning, teaching, assessment, and technology.
In this role, you would also be appointed to the Student Voice Group (SVG), which meets three to four times a year to discuss issues concerning student engagement and the student experience.
