4.6 Postgraduate Research Board and Department Postgraduate Research Committee


Overseen by the Research and Enterprise Committee, the Postgraduate Research Board is responsible for postgraduate research at Goldsmiths, including implementation of strategy and policy relating to research degree programmes, students, supervisors and Doctoral Training Centres.


The Postgraduate Research Board delegates responsibility to the Graduate School for monitoring the progress and outcomes of postgraduate research students, including recommending Special Academic Review (SAR) where appropriate following consideration of student progress.


The Postgraduate Research Board is also responsible for monitoring research supervisors in their duties, and to recommend additional training and development where appropriate. Each Department will have a committee whose remit includes consideration and approval of matters specific to postgraduate research. The composition and precise terms of reference for these committees are to be determined by the Department Board.
