Cardiff University is made up of 24 academic schools which are split between three Colleges:
- The College of Arts Humanities and Social Sciences (AHSS)
- The College of Biomedical and Life Sciences (BLS)
- The College of Physical Sciences and Engineering (PSE)
The Students’ Union holds College Forums, to give Student Academic Representatives to discuss feedback with the elected Sabbatical Officers and senior university staff. The Chair and Vice-Chair of each Student Staff Panel is invited to attend, to provide an update of what was discussed at their last meeting, and raise any issues that cannot be resolved by school staff. If a problem cannot be resolved at a Student Staff Panel, it can be brought to a College Forum.
Student Academic Representatives across the college will have an opportunity to speak on behalf of their school. Sabbatical Officers chair the meetings, and support students to engage in conversation with the college Deans, and representatives from other professional services. As well as raising concerns, this is a really good opportunity for Chairs to share best practice in their college. They can share ideas and solutions to common problems with their peers.
The dates for the 2022/23 College Forums are below, but please note that some dates are subject to change. Each Chair and Vice-Chair will be automatically invited by the Student Voice Team. If you would like to discuss the College Forums, or a specific meeting, please contact StudentReps@cardiff.ac.uk.
