Governance

The Department of Spanish, Portuguese & Latin American Studies is organised so that each area of administration has an academic lead and is represented by a committee structure that reports to the main department meeting, chaired by the Head of Department.

The Department Education Committee advises the Head of Department on teaching strategy and practice within the department while the Research Committee advises the Head of Department on all matters relating to research. The Research Students Committee covers all matters relating to research study including the monitoring of postgraduate research students. The Student-Staff Liaison Committee (SSLC), for undergraduates and taught postgraduates consists of a selection of staff members and student representatives from each year group. Discussions in the meeting focus primarily on issues raised by the student representatives on behalf of other students. 

All members of staff also carry out a number of administrative support roles within the department. 

 

The Department Education Committee (DEC) advises the Head of Department on teaching strategy and practice within the Department, at both undergraduate and postgraduate taught levels.
