Staff-Student Liaison

Within the Department of Italian, there are regular opportunities to consult members of staff on all matters relating to the Tripos and the course of study in general.

The Department holds a number of meetings for students throughout the year including start-of-year meetings for all year groups and all scheduled papers, as well as meetings to explain the Italian Year Abroad options and to present the Part IB and Part II scheduled papers. We also hold an end-of year garden party. 

The Department welcomes feedback at any time. At the end of each term online questionnaires are organised asking for comments on the term's work. Notification of these is sent out by email. Students are strongly urged to participate and responses are discussed by the Head of Department and teaching staff.

At Faculty level a Staff-Student Liaison Committee aims to ensure that good communications are maintained. Additionally, student members of the Faculty Board convene meetings of the colleges' student representatives to consult them on matters of concern, take up suggestions made by college reps, etc.

Matters raised at the Staff-Student Liaison Committee are regularly brought to the attention of the Faculty Board; indeed, the student representatives on the Board have their own ‘slot’ and are invited to raise issues of concern to the student body.

Minutes of past meetings of the former Italian-only staff-student liaison committee are available on request from the Department.
