First Day Meeting – Slides

Here is a link to the slides from the meeting on the 14th Sept 2020, and there is also a video of the Zoom session / meeting itself for those who may not have been able to attend.

Fourth Year Class Reps

As mentioned in the first day meeting, a couple of representatives from your class should be selected – by you – during the first couple of weeks. Due to remote attendance over the first part of the semester, an on-line system is being developed by the ‘StrathReps’ group; details of this will be circulated as soon as the system is available.

Once your student representatives have been nominated their names and contact details will be provided here.
