Feedback

West Road Concert Hall 1

The Faculty is keen to receive feedback from students to help us address any problems and celebrate any successes. 

Where you have an immediate issue that we could resolve quickly, please do come and talk to us in the Administration Office or pop in to see the Custodian if there's an issue with the facilities.  You can also call or email a member of the administrative team or one of the academic officers (e.g. Director of Undergraduate Studies or Director of Graduate Studies).

In order to contribute some of the longer-term discussions in the Faculty, we would encourage you to get to know and make good use of your student representatives and to attend our Staff-Student Committee You are also welcome to drop in and meet with the Faculty Chair (Professor Ian Cross) during his regular office hour from 3.30-4.30pm each Wednesday during full term.

We hope that you will be happy to discuss any concerns with us, but if you would prefer your comments to be anonymous, you can use our online feedback form.

In addition, the Faculty will invite all students to complete questionnaires regarding their teaching on a regular basis, with informal mid-course surveys used to give immediate feedback to Lecturers and course leaders and end of course data collected to help plan and adjust teaching for future years (click here for recent Lecturer responses).  The Faculty would also encourage you to present your views on the course overall as part of the National Student Survey (final year undergraduate students only) and/or the Student Barometer (all years).

In the unlikely event that you should you need to make a formal complaint, please follow this process outlined by the Office of Student Complaints and Appeals.

 

Student Representatives

Faculty Representatives are there to ensure that students have a voice in their academic experience at Cambridge. They attend Faculty meetings, including Faculty Board (for unreserved business - generally to discuss matters which are not personal to individuals or concerned with specific examinations), Staff-Student Committees and Teaching/Library Committees. As well as discussing issues that relate directly to your course and the Faculty, Committees are often asked to respond to wider University matters such as consultations on student workloads and National Student Survey results.

Therefore it is vital for students to have an input to these discussions!

Representatives may also be asked to collate feedback from students on specific issues or to respond to questions submitted via the feedback forms. They are also invited by CUSU to attend their Forum Meetings.

The Faculty has four student representatives, elected in November: two undergraduates and two graduates (one Masters, one PhD). In addition, volunteers from areas of the student body that do not have an elected rep are invited to join the Staff-Student Committees.

To contact your representatives, email: student-reps@mus.cam.ac.uk
