The College of Arts Progress Committee may consist of a combination of the following members:
Dean of Learning and Teaching;
School Learning and Teaching Conveners;
The Chief Adviser of Studies;
The Assistant Chief Adviser of Studies;
Senior Advisers of Studies
Its remit is to deal with matters concerning the progression to the next level of study of students throughout their undergraduate degree.
A quorum for any meeting of the Progress Committee will be any three of these. The Committee will meet on occasions between late June and mid-September of each year and will be clerked by the College of Arts Head of Academic & Student Administration or her nominee. Alternatively, a student may be asked to meet with a sub-committee of the progress committee.
The process involving the Progress Committee is as follows:
• students who have not met the progress requirements to continue to the next stage of their studies will be identified;
• such students will be contacted by the Chief Adviser's Office via email or telephone, and will be asked to attend a meeting. An email will be sent to each affected student with the outcome of the interview within one week of the meeting of the Progress Committee. Failure to attend may lead to a student being administratively withdrawn from the university.
Any student can be accompanied to any meeting arising from the business of the Progress Committee by a representative.
Appeals against the decisions of the Progress Committee should be directed to Matthew Hastings, the Head of Academic & Student Administration (firstname.lastname@example.org)
Any queries related to Progress matters should be directed to Jane Neil (ext. 6149, email@example.com) in the first instance.
