PGC Committees

Each year, the PGC appoints members to serve on committees that act as operational and advisory bodies to its Office Bearers. Committees will normally meet monthly with their Chair (Vice-President) and Deputy Chair (Committee Liaison) to discuss issues, agree on delegated work, respond to referred matters, and consult with relevant academic administration. The overarching goal of each committee is to create community and broad engagement amongst their constituent student body and advocate on their behalf with the PGC.

For further details on what each committee does, please feel free to get in touch with the corresponding Chair.

Attend a Meeting

PGC Meetings

The PGC meet every month to discuss matters and to share updates relevant to the postgraduate community. Matters for decision and discussion are submitted as motions by Office Bearers and Committee Liaisons. These matters are generally formalised by discussions within committees or from feedback directly referred to committees. An agenda with submitted motions and Office Bearer reports is sent to all attendees in the week prior to each scheduled meeting.

During a meeting, motions are passed by a simple majority on a show of hands. Voting members of the PGC include its Office Bearers and Committee Liaisons who are appointed to their positions in annual student elections. If you would like to attend and observe a PGC meeting either in-person or online, please email the PGC General Secretary. We welcome any and all feedback from the postgraduate community and encourage you to drive our conversations by getting in touch with your student representatives.

Minutes from past meetings that have been approved and confirmed are available for viewing on our website.
