SOCIAL SCIENCES BOARD

Decree

The Social Sciences Board, with the approval of the Educational Policy and Standards
Committee of Council, has made the following decree, to come into effect on 1 March.


Decree (1): Supervision of the Honour School of
Economics
and Management

Explanatory note

The following decree, made by the Social Sciences Board, with the approval of the
Educational Policy and Standards Committee of Council, makes clear that the Honour School
of Economics and Management is under the supervision of the divisional board, which shall
appoint a standing committee to make regulations concerning this course. Details of the terms
of reference and membership of the standing committee (which was previously under the
aegis
of the General Board) are removed from the Examination Decrees; these details
will
henceforward be agreed by the divisional board and published in relevant handbooks, as in
the case of the standing committees for other degree courses.

Associated changes in regulations are set out in `Examinations and Boards' below.

Text of Decree (1)

In Examination Decrees, 2001, p. 163, delete ll. 16–22, and substitute:

MATHEMATICAL AND PHYSICAL SCIENCES
BOARD
AND SOCIAL SCIENCES BOARD

Decrees

The Mathematical and Physical Sciences and Social Sciences Boards, with the approval of
the
Educational Policy and Standards Committee of Council, have jointly made the following
decrees, to come into effect on 1 March.


Decree (2): Supervision of the Honour Schools of
Engineering,
Economics, and Management, and of Materials, Economics, and Management

Explanatory note

The following decree, made by the Mathematical and Physical Sciences and Social Sciences
Boards, with the approval of the Educational Policy and Standards Committee of Council,
makes clear that the Honour Schools of Engineering, Economics, and Management and of
Materials, Economics, and Management are under the joint supervision of the two divisional
boards, which shall appoint a standing committee to make regulations concerning these
courses. Details of the terms of reference and membership of the standing committee (which
was previously under the aegis of the General Board) are removed from the Examination
Decrees; these details will henceforward be agreed by the divisional boards and published
in
relevant handbooks, as in the case of the standing committees for other degree courses which
are the joint responsibility of two divisional boards.

Associated changes in regulations are set out in `Examinations and Boards' below.

Text of Decree (2)

1 In Examination Decrees, 2001, p. 181, delete ll. 9-19 and
substitute:

`2. The examination in this school shall be under the joint supervision of the
Mathematical
and Physical Sciences Board and the Social Sciences Board, which shall appoint a standing

Decree (3): Industrial placements in the Honour
Schools of
Engineering, Economics, and Management, and of Materials, Economics, and Management

Explanatory note

The following decree, made by the Mathematical and Physical Sciences and Social Sciences
Boards, with the approval of the Educational Policy and Standards Committee of Council,
clarifies the agreement reached by all departments participating in the Honour Schools of
Engineering, Economics, and Management and of Materials, Economics, and Management
that
candidates on course at the moment should be offered the option to undertake an internal
project as an alternative to an industrial one. This is seen as a positive advantage for those
students whom it is difficult to place, and it will ease the difficulties of finding sufficient
placements in the present economic climate when many businesses (particularly in the
financial sector) are cutting back on staff costs.

Associated changes in regulations are set out in `Examinations and Boards' below.

Text of Decree (3)

1 In Examination Decrees, 2001, p. 181, l. 25, after `an industrial
firm' insert `, or an
industrially-related internal university project'.

2 Ibid., p. 269, l. 26, after `an industrial firm' insert `, or an

COMMITTEE OF COUNCIL

Decree

The Educational Policy and Standards Committee of Council has made the following decree,
to come into effect on 1 March.


Decree (6): Removal of redundant legislation under
the
heading `Supervision of Examinations'

Explanatory note

The following decree, made by the Educational Policy and Standards Committee of Council

guidance/codes of practice of the EPSC, and legislation is therefore unnecessary. Clause 3
is
covered by the existing Tit. IV, Sect. I, cl. 3 (Statutes, 2000, p. 33) and will in
future be
covered by section 17 of new Statute VI (Gazette, p. 216).

Text of Decree (6)

In Examination Decrees, 2001, p. 1052, delete ll. 4–26.

MOVE OF TELECOMMUNICATIONS SECTION
OFFICE

Members of the University are asked to note that on 18 February 2002 the
Telecommunications Section office will move to the Malthouse, Tidmarsh Lane, Oxford OX1
1NQ.

Telephone numbers and e-mail addresses will be unchanged (see page 59 of the current
internal telephone directory or http://www.admin.ox.ac.uk/telecom/), but the fax number will
change to Oxford (2)88660. The existing central fax service on Oxford (2)70708 will
continue
to operate in the University Offices.

Telecommunications will continue all of its current services from its new
accommodation. The main switchboard on Oxford (2)70000 and Help Desk on 88888 will
continue to be manned between 8.30 a.m. and 5 p.m. on weekdays, but, along with the rest
of the Surveyor's Office, the office will be closed to visitors at lunchtime, 1–2 p.m.,
and from 4 p.m. on Fridays. Faulty telephones should therefore be brought to the Malthouse
for exchange between 9 a.m. and 1 p.m. or 2–5 p.m., Monday–Thursday, and
9 a.m.–1 p.m. or 2–4 p.m. on Fridays.

The move will not affect the operation of the telecommunications network and will not
disrupt telephone services within colleges or departments.

However, because Telecommunications staff will be engaged in moving equipment, etc.,
there will be reduced support services in the days before and after the move. The main
switchboard (Oxford (2)70000) and the Help Desk (extension 88888) will be manned as
normal but there may be some delay to the processing of orders for moves and changes to
telephone services in colleges and departments, provision of call logger information, etc.,
during this short period.

Further information may be obtained from the Help Desk on 88888.

Library and independent study area: restricted access
during
Easter Vacation 2002

It will be necessary to restrict access and, at certain times, close the Library and parts of the
independent study area of the Language Centre during the Easter Vacation while contractors
carry out internal redecoration and repairs.

During the two weeks 11–22 March there will be restricted access to the study
rooms on the first and second floors (audio cassette workrooms, video viewing booths, and
computer workstations). As painting progresses, individual study rooms will be closed,
thereby
reducing the total number of study places available. Scaffold erection will begin at the end
of ninth week (11–15 March) and painting will continue on the top floor in the
Library.
To protect resources and equipment from dust damage, it will be necessary to wrap and seal
all audio, video, and bookcases and stacks, and there will be no access to the Library stock.

From the beginning of ninth week (11–15 March), the Library will offer a very
restricted service, concentrating on the following areas:

—daily recordings of the video news in Arabic, French, German, Italian, and Spanish.

—recent Modern Languages Final Honour School Listening Comprehension
Examination
and Discourse Question transcripts and the accompanying audio cassettes;

—a small selection of video material based on thematic topics, e.g. Italia 2000, Themes
programmes;

—a selection of dictionaries, grammars, and vocabulary builders in some commonly
taught languages.

In addition, regular users may make a reservation during ninth week for a textbook
(including workbook and transcript) plus accompanying audio/video cassettes, dictionary,
grammar, and a vocabulary builder (or some other combination) for use in the Centre during
the period of restricted access.

There will be no inductions for new users during the period 11–22 March.

The Centre will be closed for Easter from Friday, 29 March to Sunday, 7 April 2002
inclusive and will reopen on Monday, 8 April.

The Centre apologises for the inconvenience this closure may cause to regular users.

The Library is open during term-time Monday–Friday, 9.30 a.m.--6.30 p.m., and
on Saturday 10 a.m.--1 p.m.

Further details of the courses above and of all other activities may be obtained from the
Information Officer, Angela Pinkney, at the Language Centre, 12 Woodstock Road, Oxford
OX2 6HT (telephone: (2)83360, e-mail admin@lang.ox.ac.uk, Internet:
