Joint Consultative Committee with Undergraduates (JCCU)
This committee is the main forum for discussions between the department and undergraduate students about matters concering the undergraduate courses. The committee consists of thirteen member of the Mathematics Undergraduate Representative Committee (MURC) and representative of the Department of Mathematics and Statistics. The committee is chaired by the Director of Undergraduate Studies and the secretary to the committee is one of the undergraduate members. The committee meets once a term and minutes of the meetings are made available to all students.
MURC is composed of a representative from each college and an elected exectuive committee. MURC holds regular meetings during term to discuss issues connected to the academic organisation of the undergraduate courses. Any undergraduate can raise an issue through their college's MURC representative. See the MURC pages for further information.
Feedback on Courses
Undergraduates are encouraged to provide feedback to the department on the lecture courses they attend. Questionnaires to complete will be handed out during the last week of lectures. Undergraduates who undertake project options, such as a Part B extended essay or a Part C dissertation, are also invited to complete a questionnaire. All feedback forms can be found on the questionnaires page.
The department's Good Practice Committee has carried out a number of surveys on matters relating to teaching. You can find reports on the outcome of those consultations here.
There are a number of student societies run across the Mathematical Sciences which aim to promote a social environment within the departments. At the Mathematical Institute, we have the Invariant society and the Mirzakhani society, as well as LGBTQubed. Additionally, there are over 200 clubs and societies at Oxford, with a full list available here.
