The management board invites two student representatives from each cohort to relay student issues and feedback to the board, and help ensure that the DTP remains responsive to student needs. The Management Board is responsible for monitoring and supporting the management and strategy underlying the DTP, and board meetings are held once a month at UCL.
New representatives are elected in May each year. Students in the first, second or third year of their PhD may nominate themselves to be student representative, who will be selected by a student vote.
The Student Representatives for 2016/17 are Phoebe Maund and Lucy Roberts from cohort 1, and Mark Jefferd and Lara Smale from cohort 2
