Staff-Student Liaison


Within the Department of German and Dutch, there are regular opportunities to consult members of staff on all matters relating to the Tripos and the course of study in general.

The Head of Department, Professor Sarah Colvin, is happy to be consulted at any time and students are welcome to e-mail her on mmlgehod@hermes.cam.ac.uk

The Department holds a number of meetings for students throughout the year including receptions for Freshers and students returning from their year abroad, and meetings to explain the German Year Abroad options and to present the Part IB and Part II scheduled papers.

The Department welcomes feedback at any time. At the end of each term online questionnaires are organised asking for comments on the term's work. Notification of these is sent out by email. Students are strongly urged to participate and responses are discussed by the Head of Department and teaching staff.

At Faculty level a Staff-Student Liaison Committee aims to ensure that good communications are maintained. Additionally, student members of the Faculty Board convene meetings of the colleges' student representatives to consult them on matters of concern, take up suggestions made by college reps, etc.
