The University has two faculties, Science, Health and Engineering and Arts, Humanities and Business, which between them encompass all of the Higher Education curriculum in the University. Each Faculty is represented by a Faculty Board, which meets three times per year. The remit of the committee can be found in the UHI’s Academic Regs and includes planning for curriculum and student numbers, assisting in the development of policies, monitoring quality assurance, enhancement and exam board processes, facilitating sharing of good practice and linking of research with teaching. Each committee has space for up to two student representatives, and their contributions are important as they can bring the student voice and perspective into all of our discussions. There is no requirement to canvas or gather student’s views in advance, we are interested in your own perspective.
The meetings take place using video conferencing tolls, so you can join from anywhere. There is usually quite a large volume of paperwork for each meeting, though the Dean (and Chair of the Board) can help to navigate some of this material in advance if this would be helpful.
Student representation is important in all aspects of University life.
