Student-ICT Forum

Deputy President (Education)

On Thursday, the first Student-ICT forum will be taking place, which allows students to raise their views on what ICT should be working on next, but also for ICT to run ideas past us students.

An undergraduate and a postgraduate from each faculty attend this meeting and represent their cohort’s views and currently are discussing the issues below, but if you want any other issues to be raised then please either tell me or the academic representatives that represent you.
