Student Representation

Joint Consultative Committee for Undergraduate Matters

The Classics Faculty’s JCC is the main forum in which students can put forward suggestions and raise any matters of concern about the organisation and content of the Faculty’s undergraduate courses. The JCC comprises six senior members as well as student representatives from each college. Membership is open to any student reading for a BA in Literae Humaniores, Classics & English, Classics & Modern Languages, Classics & Oriental Studies, Classical Archaeology & Ancient History or Ancient & Modern History.

Typical agenda items for the JCC’s termly meetings include proposals for changes to course syllabuses, lecture arrangements and library provision. Each year the JCC elects two student presidents, who serve as undergraduate representatives at meetings of the Classics Faculty Board and the Sub-Faculties, and play a leading role in organising the annual FHS Options Fair in Hilary Term. There are also student representatives on the standing committees responsible for each undergraduate degree course.

Undergraduate students are encouraged to contact their college JCC representatives if there are any matters they would like the JCC to consider. For a list of current JCC representatives, please see WebLearn.

This year’s JCC presidents are:

Graduate Representatives

The Faculty’s Graduate Student Representatives attend meetings of the Faculty Board, Sub-Faculties, Graduate Studies Committees and the Ioannou Centre Management Committee. Graduates are encouraged to contact their representatives if there are any matters of concern which they would like the Faculty to consider.

All graduate students in Ancient History and Classical Languages & Literature are invited, and encouraged, to attend the annual Graduate Forum in Hilary Term, which provides an important opportunity for discussion of academic and administrative matters affecting graduates.
