Information for those preparing papers for Council

Deadlines for papers, 2015/16

The main items for Council are planned well in advance of the meeting itself. If you know of an item that is going to need to come to Council, please contact the Senior Assistant Registrar (Governance) at the earliest possible opportunity. Some items, particularly if they are complex or require legal or other specialist input, can take quite some time to prepare, and may need to go to one or more of Council’s committees, or to Divisional Boards or the Conference of Colleges, before coming to Council itself.

The following are the deadlines for papers that are in final draft.
