Individual student feedback is sought regularly through feedback forms for each lecture series, as well as the course as a whole, and your experience of the department.
There is a Graduate Joint Consultative Committee in the Department, which is an opportunity for students' views and concerns to be raised. Each group elects student representatives who are responsible for consulting with the full group to identify any issues to bring to this committee.
At a wider level for the Social Science Division, there is a discussion forum made up of student representatives from each department/faculty of the division. Issues raised by this body are reported to the division’s Graduate Studies Committee. DSPI representatives are appointed by the students each year.
The views of research students are also sought by means of a centrally administered questionnaire, the Student Barometer.
