There are various channels of communication between students and the Department. On an informal basis, students having academic difficulties with a course are encouraged to approach their academic advisors, lecturer or tutor concerned.
A formal consultative process between students and staff exists in the Department in the form of a Joint Staff/Student Consultative Committee (JSSCC) and Programme Committee, to which 2-3 student representatives from each cohort of each mode (for MSc programme only) will be nominated. The Committees meets at least once a semester. During the meeting, discussions are confined to matters of a general academic nature and the welfare of students. Students can express their views on the content and organization of the programme and identify any areas of difficulty. The Programme Committee is charged with the responsibility of monitoring the operation and performance of the programme.
