Degree Programme Committee

Degree Programme Committee

The Degree Programme Committee is the main staff-student participation body at the department level. The DPC safeguards the quality of U.S.E.’s teaching, addresses any potential bottlenecks and gives advice, asked or unasked, concerning the development and execution of education policy. The main way in which we do this is by commenting on results of course evaluations, and on course descriptions. The DPC also has the right to suggest changes in the Education and Exam regulations, on which we have a formal vote. This makes the DPC highly important. It is close to the students, and often the first step if something needs to be changed. Interested?
