The NDWRH Student Committee is a student-led committee comprised of DPhil and MSc by Research students, as well as a representative from the MSc in Clinical Embryology.

ABOUT THE COMMITTEE

The purpose of the committee is to foster a community environment within the student body of the department across all sites and to encourage communication and feedback between students and staff within the department. NDWRH is spread over multiple sites* (see department sites at the bottom of this page) therefore it is particularly important for the students to communicate and get together on a regular basis. The committee therefore aims to have a representative from each site hold a role in the committee. 

The student committee’s president attends termly Graduate Joint Consultative Committee (GJCC) meetings within the Medical Sciences Division as well as departmental Studies Committee meetings and Senior Staff meetings. 

The student committee organises social events for DPhil and MRes students throughout the year as well as organising induction/welcome events for new students.The Welfare Reps offer students a peer-based outlet and can provide information on University resources. Where possible these reps will have received Peer Support training and can offer a confidential support network.​

 

MEET THE COMMITTEE

The members of the NDWRH Student Committee act as your representatives for the department. Therefore please get in touch with a member of the committee if you have any questions, issues or suggestions to help make the department the best it can be!

"For me being in the committee means finding ways of bringing together all the students at the NDWRH. It is about creating a community where students feel supported by their peers and can meet and have a chat with their fellow students during the social activities that we organise in and outside of the Department".

"Being part of the student committee has been a rewarding experience. I wanted to be involved in creating opportunities for us to interact with each other on a social level to keep our student community interactive and fun. We aim to hold regular social events throughout the year and to maintain a supportive community".

SOCIAL REP

"Studying in a highly academic environment requires a good work-life balance. Being a social rep gives me the platform to serve the student community by organising events that will encourage networking and social interactions beyond the usual academic and lab groups.  Serving on the PGR committee is a rewarding experience to represent students’ interests and work directly with management in promoting students' welfare and wellbeing".

WELFARE & ATHENA SWAN REP

"I joined the PGR student committee as Welfare Rep so that I could address student mental health in the department. Graduate students are disproportionately affected by poor mental health, and so it is my goal to foster a community where students feel that their mental health is supported by their peers, their supervisors, and the department more broadly".

 

DEPARTMENT SITES 

* Our students are based at a number of department sites including: The Women’s Centre, the Weatherall Institute of Molecular Medicine (both at the John Radcliffe Hospital, Oxford) and the Institute of Reproductive Sciences (IRS), Oxford Business Park. See more here.
