The Academic Board has two standing committees:
The Academic Council is the principal executive arm of the Academic Board through which most of the Board's business is conducted.
Considers proposals relating to the University's internal legislation including by-laws, statutes, regulations, rules and faculty governance documents.
The role of the Research Committee is to advise and make recommendations to the School and Head of School on matters relating to research and postgraduate research training and supervision.
The role of the University Curriculum Committee is to make recommendations to the Academic Council on proposals submitted for the introduction of new curriculum offerings and to approve changes to curriculum.
