Faculty Student Council
A Faculty Student Council (FSR) discusses, on behalf of the faculty’s students, faculty policy with the dean.
Together they discuss faculty-specific issues such as student facilities, resit opportunities and the Teaching and Examination Regulations, which set out a number of your rights as a student.
Like the Central Student Council, the Faculty Student Councils have the right to be consulted and the right of consent. The right of consent means that the FSR’s approval is required for policy to become legal and therefore binding. The FSR has right of consent on the TER, which are revised every year in May.
The right of consultation means that the FSR must be consulted on certain decisions. The FSR responds by issuing an opinion. While this opinion is not binding, it must be factored into the decision-making process.
