Academic Advisory Board

The SWDTP Academic Advisory Board (AAB) manages the education partnership between the institutions, and the development and implementation of academic programmes.  It decides on all operational and delivery and quality functions for the SWDTP, as well as taking funding decisions for collaboration funds and allowances devolved by the ESRC.  Our student reps have a close link with the AAB and they attend meetings to advise on how we work, our priorities and to provide detailed feedback from students.
