If there are matters you wish to have discussed at a Graduate Committee meeting, they may be raised with any committee member. The student reps normally circulate a reminder shortly before each meeting.

A summary of matters discussed at meetings, and decisions taken, is circulated to all graduates and staff shortly after each meeting.
