We want you to be a part of the CS community! There are several ways that you can get involved and make sure that the student voice is heard.
Become a Student Academic Representative (StAR)
Student Academic Representatives (StARs) are elected at the start of each year to represent the views of their classmates. The main forum for this is the Staff-Student Consultative Committee meeting which the department holds each term. Student representatives are also invited to sit on the Departmental Teaching Committee (DTC).
UCLU provides additional information for StARs, including training, networking opportunities and resources.
Module Feedback Questionnaires
Towards the end of each term we will ask you to (anonymously) complete Module Feedback Questionnaires on each of the modules you took. The responses are analysed and the findings are discussed at SSCC and DTC meetings, and the feedback is also addressed by lecturers as part of the Annual Monitoring (AM) process (see below).
National Student Survey (NSS)
Now OPEN for 2013
Final year undergraduates get the opportunity to feed back via the National Student Survey (NSS). The feedback from this survey is also discussed at SSCC and DTC meetings. You can view the UCL CS Profile (inc NSS Results), on Unistats Website
We hold a feedback session at the end of the each taught master's programme and the issues raised there are discussed at the Departmental Teaching Committee.
Quality Assurance and Annual Monitoring
Annual Monitoring (AM) is completed yearly for all UCL taught programmes and their constituent modules. It is carried out to enable reflection on issues arising in the previous academic year, to allow feedback from students, staff and External Examiners to be discussed and considered and to emphasise action taken (or that need to be taken) on issues arising.
Periodically the department is subject to internal or external quality audit, and there are also opportunities for students to be involved in this process by feeding back on the department's student support processes.
AM data from 2011/12 is being collected and should be available to view in November 2012 (Undrgraduate) and February 2013 (Postgraduate).
