Making requests to the University Research Degree Sub Committee
The University Research Degree Sub Committee is the only committee in the University that can make decisions on research students. Faculties have no regulatory control for research students. The University Research Degree Sub Committee is chaired by Professor Andrew Slade, Deputy Vice Chancellor, Research and Enterprise, and is made up of at least two representatives from each faculty.
|Carnegie Faculty||Professor Anne Flintoff|
|Carnegie Faculty||Dr Caroline Bligh|
|Faculty of Business and Law||Dr George Lodorfos|
|Faculty of Business and Law||Dr Niki Kyriakidou|
|Faculty of Arts Environment and Technology||Professor Ian Strange|

|Faculty of Health and Social Sciences||Professor Richard Hogston|
|Faculty of Health and Social Sciences||Professor Steven Robertson|
|University Research Office||Mrs Kathryn Brown|
|Secretary to the Committee||Ms Joanne Burgess|
For any changes to a research student’s record a form should be completed to make a request to the Committee. The form should be fully completed and contain a full explanation of the reasons for the request.
For guidance, supervisors should speak to the University Research Office and/or their faculty’s representative on the Committee to make sure that they are briefed on the request.
