The CANES programme seeks to provide you with a learning environment that is both rewarding and challenging. Therefore, we want to constantly listen and respond to what you say about your student experience.
Every year we will be seeking 2 students from the starting cohort and 1 student from previous cohorts to become student representative. Nominations will be put forward at the beginning of the new academic year and student representatives will be elected shortly after.
As a student representative you have a great opportunity to get directly involved in improving the King’s experience not only for yourself but for other students in CANES. It’s your job to tell us what you like and don’t like so that we can continue to do the things you like and improve on the things you don’t. Without your feedback, we can’t change things for the better.
Being a rep is also a fantastic chance to get experience of serving on the CANES Steering committee which will meet twice a year. This is a great addition to your CV, showing communication skills, a desire to improve the student experience for all, and commitment and engagement with the CDT.
Student representatives for 2018/19 are: Jacob Delveaux (Cohort V)
The recently created student committee is composed of all cohorts with remit mainly centred on outreach and social activities. The committee meets 3 times a year, once per teaching semester and once in the summer term.
Staff Student Fora
The student body meets the CANES management (including Cohort tutors) twice a year to feedback on various aspects of the programme, including workload and course structure, progression to PhD, soft skills training provision, and equality and diversity issues. The Fora are scheduled to allow issues to be fed efficiently into the next Steering Committee meeting.
