MMLL Degree Committee and Postgraduate Studies Committee


The Degree Committee has the statutory duty for overseeing the admission, progress and examination of graduate students in the Faculty, including formal matters such as appointment of supervisors, examiners, the approval of dissertation and thesis titles, and requests for the deferral of submission and intermission. One of the most important tasks of the Degree Committee is to receive the reports of individual examiners for MPhil theses and PhD dissertations. The Degree Committee approves and awards the MPhil directly, and makes recommendations to the Board of Graduate Studies as to whether a student should or should not be awarded the degree of PhD.

The Postgraduate Studies Committee formulates, implements and monitors Faculty policy and procedures in relation to postgraduate education and administration in the Faculty, and provides a forum for the discussion, development and dissemination of good practice at postgraduate level.

Prof Robert Gordon is Chairman of the Faculty (responsible for Postgraduate matters).

Dr John Leigh is the Academic Secretary to the Degree Committee, and Director of Postgraduate Studies.
