Steering Committee

This Committee consists of the Management Team and representatives of Project Partners and is chaired by Barney Sloane,  Historic England. From the student’s point of view, their role is important as they:

  1. Advise on and approve research projects with tripartite supervision
  2. Approve the academic calendar and the SEAHA Handbook
  3. Follow the academic progression of students
  4. Advise on and approve individual student training programmes,particularly combinations of MRes modules in order to ensure suitable cross-disciplinary learning.

Particularly in this respect, the Committee works closely with supervisors.
