Their purpose is to create a formal forum for students to discuss their experience, both in and outside of the classroom, with LSE staff.
SSLCs are a shared, collaborative endeavour between Departments, the Students’ Union, central School Services, and, most importantly, students themselves.
Students are elected in the first two weeks of Michaelmas Term to represent the views of his/her peers at their departmental Staff-Student Liaison Committees (SSLC).
We assume that those elected are happy to remain in the role each year of their course.
Read through this to find out more 'What is a Student Academic Representative?'. Information on how to become one for the Language Centre will be communicated at the start of each academic year.
At the Language Centre we have an SSLC for our undergraduate programmes which meets once in the Michaelmas Term and once in the Lent term.
Our SSLC is chaired by the Director of the Language Centre and the meetings address wider Departmental and School issues and matters relating to the student teaching and learning experience. Our Programme Directors are members and the Committee Secretary is our BSc Programme Manager.
We would like to have two representatives from each of our programmes for each cohort. (i.e. 2 students from our BSc Language, Culture and Society; 2 students from our BSc International Relations and Chinese for each year).
Dates of meetings and details of student representatives will appear here.
