Student Staff Liaison Committee



The Student Staff Liaison Committee (SSLC) exists to provide a forum for the discussion of matters of interest and concern to staff and students in the working of the Department.

The membership of the committee comprises of an academic coordinator, two representatives from each undergraduate year, two postgraduate representatives, two PHD representatives, a faculty administrator and a representative from the library and IT services. The student representatives are elected early in the Autumn term.

All undergraduate and postgraduate students may ask their year representatives to raise issues at a meeting and are encouraged to do so (contact details are below). Normally the department hold three meetings per academic year; however, anyone in the Department may suggest a meeting if a particular issue seems to warrant urgent discussion in this forum.

You asked…We delivered!


The regular SSLC meetings have proven effective in bringing changes to the Economics department. This is a great platform for all current students to raise any issues, queries or recommendations that they may have within the department.

In the recent years the SSLC has contributed to making the following departmental changes:

  • In January 2013, the department opened up an Economics undergraduate hub. Specifically for Economics undergraduates, the hub can be used as both a social and study space. Students have been provided with a projector, whiteboards and study related books.
  • The department doubled its library budget, increasing the number of core textbooks available.
  • Introduction of extra online tests for first year and second year courses.
  • Integration of Turnitin with Moodle to make it easier to submit electronic copies of coursework.
  • Academic hiring focusing on staff with research interests in finance to offer students more finance related courses.
  • Introduction of the Undergraduate Events Programme, with more events on the way.
  • Extra sessions in the trading room for post-graduates.
  • Provision for MSc specific study space within the Horton building.
  • All 2nd and 3rd year PhD students have now been given individual dedicated work stations for their studies.
