HEBDOMADAL COUNCIL


1 Decrees

Council has made the following decrees, to come into
effect on 2 May.

List of the decrees:

Return to List of Contents of this
section


Decree (1): University Composition fees for
the M.Sc. in Software Engineering

Explanatory note

The following decree, made on the recommendation of the
Committee on Continuing Education and with the
concurrence of the General Board, limits the composition
fees payable for the M.Sc. in Software Engineering to not
more and not fewer than six fees (at the half-time rate).
This reflects the financial arrangements for the course,
in which provision has been made for the payment of fees
at this level. However, as the course may be taken in
fewer or more than six terms, it is thought to be
reasonable to set a fixed amount for the composition fee
payable to protect both the interests of the students and
the income of the Department for Continuing Education.


Text of Decree (1)

In Examination Decrees, 1996, p. 1062, l.
10, after `twelve composition fees,' insert `those who
are students for the Degree of Master of Science in
Software Engineering shall pay not more and not fewer
than six composition fees (at the half rate) irrespective
of the period for which they are registered for that
degree,'.



Decree (2): University
composition fees for `home' and certain other categories
of students

Explanatory note

The Department for Education and Employment has announced
that the maximum fees reimbursable through the awards
system for home and EU undergraduates in 1997–8 will
be set at the same levels as in 1994-5 and the following
years, as set out below:

£
Band 1—classroom-based courses 750
Band 2—laboratory/workshop-based
courses
1,600
Band 3—clinical courses 2,800

It has also been announced that the maximum tuition fee
reimbursable through the awards system for home and EU
postgraduates in 1997-8 will be £2,540 (compared
with £2,490 in 1996–7). The following decree
gives effect to these changes.

Council has already made a decree setting the level of
fees for overseas students in 1997–8 (Decree (11) of
21 June 1996, Gazette, Vol. 126, p. 1285).
For a number of years the levels of fee to be charged to
overseas students have been set well in advance. Council
and the General Board will review the position for
1998–9 during the course of Trinity Term and will
then publish the proposed levels of fee.

Opportunity is taken in cl. 2 of the following decree to
set the fee for Recognised and Visiting Students, which
is half the Category A rate (i.e. £3,150 in
1997–8). Cl. 3 sets the fee for members of the
University working on the Foreign Service Course at the
Category B rate (i.e. £8,400 in 1997–8). The
decree also makes provision in cl. 4 for the level of
university fee to be charged in 1997–8 for the
Diploma Course in European Studies (intended primarily
for Japanese managers). Cl. 7 sets the level of fee to be
charged in that year for the course for the Degree of
Master of Business Administration.

Notification has not as yet been received of the
arrangements which will apply in 1997–8 in respect
of students from the Channel Islands or the Isle of Man.
Colleges will be informed of the position separately once
an announcement has been received. It is expected,
however, that (as in the case of home and EU fees for
undergraduates) the recommended levels will be the same
as in 1996-7.

Text of Decree (2)

1996, p. 1064, 1. 14, delete `For 1996–7' and

The committee renominated the existing panel of four

Disciplinary Court would be appointed by Mr Vice-
Chancellor with effect from Trinity Term 1997. (Mr Vice-
Chancellor subsequently reappointed Mr H.W.B. Mendus of
Simms & Co. to serve as Clerk.)

The committee also reviewed the current Regulations and
agreed to support an additional measure (already
introduced by the Proctors under their emergency
powers—Tit. XIII, cl. 8; Statutes,
1995, p. 97) prohibiting junior members from being in
possession of substances such as flour and fizzy liquids
with an intention of committing an offence under the
existing legislation dealing with `gathering' outside the
Examination Schools or other examination venues. (A
detailed notice of this amendment, as required by the
Statutes, was published in Gazette, 27
February 1997, p. 797.) Subject to this amendment, the
Rules Committee approved its Regulations to remain in
force for a further year with effect from Michaelmas Term
1997.

[1] Registrar drew name by lot to be a member of the
Disciplinary Court, 1997–8.

ASSOCIATION OF UNIVERSITY
TEACHERS

The Association of University Teachers is both a
professional association and a trade union, committed to
the advancement of university education and research. At
the national level, the AUT is the recognised union for
academic and academic-related staff. Besides its concern
for more general questions of university education and
research, the AUT negotiates salary levels and conditions
of employment with the Committee of Vice-Chancellors and
Principals.

The Oxford branch of the AUT is open for membership
to university and college employees, whether academic or
academic-related. It has over 900 members. It is the
official body with which the University discusses
priorities and problems bearing on education and
research, and negotiates solutions to them. Discussions
between the Oxford AUT and university officers occur
formally once per term at a meeting of a Joint
Consultative Committee, but there are many other informal
meetings to discuss particular problems, including those
affecting the conditions of employment of academic and
academic-related staff, such as the `waiver clause' for
those employed on contract grants. The local AUT also
provides confidential advice on problems relating to
terms and conditions of employment.

Application for membership and other enquiries can
be made to Mrs Anne Hendry, Administrative Secretary,
Oxford AUT, New Barnett House, 28 Little Clarendon
Street, Oxford OX1 2HY (telephone and fax: (2)70418, e-
mail: aut@vax.ox.ac.uk) (9.30 a.m.--3 p.m.,
Monday--Friday).

Enquiries may also be directed to the following: Kit
Bailey (Honorary Secretary), Department of Plant Sciences
(telephone: (2)75090); Denis O'Driscoll, Department of
Biochemistry (telephone: (2)75260); Arthur Marsh
(Personal Cases), St Edmund Hall (telephone: (2)74170).

General meetings of the Oxford AUT take place on
Tuesday of third week in each term. The next meeting will
be the Annual General Meeting, to be held at 1 p.m. on
Tuesday, 27 May, in Queen Elizabeth House, 21 St Giles'.
