SSCC and GeogSoc

SSCC

Every department at UCL has a Staff-Student Consultative Committee (SSCC). The Geography SSCC meets twice in each of terms 1 and 2. The SSCC provides a forum for discussion between staff and student representatives (StARs). It affords an important opportunity for students to give feedback on their learning experience and is central to maintaining and improving the quality of education at UCL. The Geography department undergraduate SSCC is chaired by a year 3 student and is attended by representatives from each degree programme in each year of study. At least three to four Geography staff members attend the SSCC, including the Departmental Tutor who feeds SSCC comments to the Departmental Teaching Committee (DTC), which is scheduled to follow the SSCC. For urgent matters the Department will look to make a very quick response to the SSCC. For less urgent issues, a written response will be provided to the SSCC chair within two weeks. SSCC minutes and departmental responses are also lodged on the GEOGRAPHY UNDERGRADUATE e- NOTICEBOARD Moodle page.

Elected SSCC representatives are also nominated to be UCL Union Student Academic Representatives (StARS). Further information on StARS can be found online: http://uclu.org/services/representation/student-academic-representatives-stars.

If there are matters that you wish to raise, contact the student representative for your year.

UCL GeogSoc

The Geographical Society (GeogSoc) is run by a committee of students from the Department and is responsible for arranging academic and social events during the year. The president, normally a second year student, will be arranging elections for first year representatives early during the first term.

The Society’s activities include guest lectures, staff-student quizzes, Departmental teas and the Annual GeogSoc Ball.  Future events are advertised on the GeogSoc notice board on the lower ground floor 26 Bedford Way and if you would like to help or make suggestions, for example, over possible guest speakers, then contact the Committee via the GeogSoc pigeon hole (located with your pigeon holes on the lower ground floor of 26 Bedford Way) and/or by e-mail.
