SSLC meetings are one way in which staff and student communicate with each other and reps play a crucial role in ensuring that student concerns are addressed and that students have a say in the running of their programme. If you have any thoughts, ideas or concerns about your programme then these can be raised and discussed at the SSLC by your student academic representative.
The role of student academic representative is crucial to effective quality assurance of courses and programmes in the School; and those chosen as rep will be given full training by the Students Union. As well as having the potential to increase your profile and confidence during your time at LSE, the role of a student academic representative is a great addition to your CV.
The SSLC is run twice a year, once in Michaelmas Term and once in Lent Term.
The Undergraduate SSLC also elects one rep to attend the relevant school level UG students consultative committee forum. Find out more information on the Undergraduate Students' Consultative Forum.
