Student Staff Liaison Committee

The Student Staff Liaison Committee (SSLC) provides a forum where representatives of students in the school meet with staff to discuss the running of courses and the school. Your representatives can put forward your views on these issues and any others that affect your time as a member of our school.

Representing your voice

The student representatives play an essential role in conveying student needs and opinions within the school. They act as your voice. Please take any feedback that you would like to give the department to one of the representatives listed below. If you would like to become a student representative email Gary Richardson grichard@essex.ac.uk in the Students' Union.

Want to be involved?

If you are interested in becoming a student representative, or have any ideas to improve things, then the easiest approach is to discuss them directly with an appropriate member of staff (your course supervisor or the Undergraduate/Postgraduate Administrator). The Committee holds two meetings a year.
