CONGREGATION 7 March 2 p.m.


2 Promulgation of Statute

Statute: Establishment of Degree of Doctor of Clinical Psychology

Explanatory note

The following statute, and the decree to be made by Council if the
statute is approved, which are promoted on the recommendation of the
Psychological Studies Board and the Clinical Medicine Board and with
the concurrence of the General Board, establish as a degree validated
by the University the Degree of Doctor of Clinical Psychology
(D.Clin.Psychol.), which is offered by the Directorate of the Oxford
Doctoral Course in Clinical Psychology.

The course provides candidates with a rigorous academic training and
requires them to demonstrate research and clinical competence. A high
proportion of Oxford graduates in Psychology choose a clinical career
and it is fitting therefore that the University should be associated
with a course which provides the training for such careers. The
Oxford course is accredited by the British Psychological Society and
in the recent review received the highest level of accreditation.

It is intended that the link will bring considerable academic benefit
to the University by fostering co-operation between the Departments
of Psychiatry and Experimental Psychology and strengthening the links
of those departments with the clinical work in the region. The
academic benefits of a link with the University will strengthen and
support the academic and research elements of the course.

WHEREAS it is expedient to establish the Degree of Doctor of
Clinical Psychology, NOW THE UNIVERSITY OF OXFORD, in exercise of the
powers in that behalf conferred upon it by the Universities of Oxford
and Cambridge Act, 1923, and of all other powers enabling it, ENACTS,
clause 1 being subject to the approval of Her Majesty in Council, AS
FOLLOWS.

1 In Tit. III, cl. 3, concerning membership of
Convocation (Statutes, 1997, p. 31), after `Doctor of
Philosophy' insert:

`Doctor of Clinical Psychology if a matriculated member of the
University'.

2 In Tit. XI, cl. 4, concerning degrees of the
University (p. 79), after `Doctor of Philosophy' insert:

`Doctor of Clinical Psychology'.

3 Clause 1 of this statute shall be effective
from the date on which it is approved by Her Majesty in Council;
clause 2 shall be effective from 1 October 2000.

DEPARTMENT FOR CONTINUING EDUCATION

The Department for Continuing Education exists to make the University
accessible to men and women in ways which complement the University's
provision for its resident members. Each year the department mounts several
hundred courses, either part-time or short full-time, covering most subjects
taught within the University (except management and clinical medicine).
Courses last anything from one day to ten weeks (full time), and between ten
weeks and two years on a part-time basis. Currently about 15,900 students
enrol annually for the department's courses, the average length of study
being twenty hours. A recent development has been the introduction of
technology-assisted courses, using the Internet to supplement classroom
teaching. Apart from a large number of individual members of the University
who offer courses or give lectures, the Department for Continuing Education
works in co- operation with an increasing number of other departments and
faculties throughout the University. It welcomes expressions of interest from
individuals and departments who wish to become involved in or to explore
continuing education activities. The department's main provision is organised
through three programme offices (see below), each of which is able to provide
more detailed information on current and forthcoming activities. In addition,
the Kellogg Residential Centre, when not being used for courses, can
occasionally be made available for conferences and other residential meetings.


The Public Programme Office

This Office (Director: Mr R.T. Rowley) offers to the public a wide range of
study opportunities in most academic disciplines through part-time day,
evening and short residential courses. In 1996–7 almost 12,000 adult
students enrolled on lifelong learning programmes offered through the Public
Programme Division. Many programmes have open entry and require no formal
entry qualifications. However, the majority of courses are now either award-
bearing or carry higher education credit. The award- bearing courses are
offered at access undergraduate and post graduate level, and do call for
evidence of ability to complete the programme satisfactorily. During the
summer the Public Programme Division offers a series of study opportunities
for domestic and European students through the Oxford University Summer
School for Adults, a Local History Summer School and the Summer Academy
based at Keble College. The Division engages a large number of part-time
tutors, both from within the University and outside, and individuals interested
in offering specific courses or contribution to other programmes are invited
to contact the office. Details of all courses are publicised in the Annual
Prospectus or are available at any time from the Manager of Public
Programmes (telephone: Oxford (2)70360).


The Continuing Professional Development Centre

Short and extended courses

This Centre (Director: Dr M.A. Gray) works with departments and faculties
throughout the University to offer courses designed to meet the needs of
individuals and organisations drawn from industry, the professions, commerce,
and academia. Courses vary from one- or two-day intensive updating courses
based on the latest academic research to longer courses enabling professionals
to review advances in specialised fields, and acquire new areas of expertise
and qualifications. Areas covered include engineering, law, information
technology and computing, mathematics, biomedical science, and personal skills
development. Contributors to courses include Oxford academics and research
staff and experts from other universities and organisations in the UK and
abroad.

Conferences/Seminars/Workshops

The CPD Centre is also able to offer a conference organisation and management
service to colleagues within the University and other organisations. The CPD
Centre has specialist skills and more than fifteen years' collective experience
or organising and managing conferences, seminars, and training courses for
up to 500 delegates. The Centre provides a `total conference package' which
combines the best of personal service with the highest professional standards.
Services offered include the following:

—Conference planning and academic support

—Budget preparation and account management

—Venue sourcing, including residential accommodation, lecture theatres,
hotels, and catering support

—Organisation of exhibitions and displays, design and provision of
publicity

—Promotion/advertising/marketing support

—Mailing; compilation of databases

—Organisation of social programmes, excursions, and tours

—Translation and interpretation services, technical and audio- visual
support

—Pre-registration management and on-site registration services,
preparation of pre-prints, binders, badges

—Post-conference reports and proceedings.

Further details are available from Oxford (2)88169.


The International Programmes Office

This office (Director: Dr A. Hawkins) offers a wide range of courses to
undergraduates, graduates and continuing education students from around the
world. These courses include year-long full- time programmes for Japanese
graduates and diplomats from the Republic of China, Taiwan, as well as a large
number of three- or four-week courses held during the summer for students
from Europe and North America. Programmes are held in partnership with
institutions such as the Smithsonian Institution, the University of California
at Berkeley, Duke University, the University of Virginia and Northwestern
University in America. International Programmes also works with the British
Council, the European Commission, and the FCO, as well as offering courses in
partnership with the Bodleian Library and many other departments and
colleges within the University. Subjects covered in these courses include
topics from law and industrial relations through to archaeology, art history,
and the physical and biological sciences. Tutors are drawn from Oxford
academic and research staff, and expertise is also recruited from outside the
University. Programmes vary in size from small groups of twenty students to
larger programmes of over 200 participants. During the summer many
residential International Programmes, including the Oxford University Summer
Programmes in English Literature and in History, Politics and Society, are held
in colleges throughout Oxford, in addition to those held at the Rewley House
Residential Centre. Over the next few years the range of courses offered by
the International Programmes Office will be expanded, drawing in more
students from Europe, from countries formerly part of the Soviet Union, and
from elsewhere around the world. As the work of the International Programmes
Office expands, approaches would be welcomed from those colleges,
departments and other institutions who have accommodation from which they
would like to generate further income or from individuals with suitable
qualifications interested in teaching on international programmes. Telephone:
Oxford (2)70456.


Technology-Assisted Lifelong Learning (TALL)

TALL (Director: Jonathan Darby) was established in 1996 with support from the
Esmée Fairbairn Charitable Trust and the W.K. Kellogg Foundation to
investigate and develop new ways of using technology to support lifelong
learning. It is directed by Jonathan Darby who previously directed the HE
Funding Councils' and DENI's Computers in Teaching Initiative. Many aspects
of on- line education remain poorly understood. TALL is conducting research
into:

Models of delivery—identifying optimal ways of using
technology to deliver courses and educational services;

international transferability—addressing issues such as
use of language, culture, educational systems and differing educational needs
with the aim of ensuring that Oxford-produced on-line courses are designed
in such a way that they will be attractive to students outside the UK;

markets for on-line courses—using surveys to develop
an understanding of the nature of the market for on-line courses.

TALL is seeking to use technology to design courses of three types:

Hybrid: short intensive periods in Oxford punctuate
Internet- supported study to create a course which uses each form of
teaching for the purposes to which it is best suited.

Fully remote: a course in Italian for Intermediate and
Advanced Learners has been completed with EU support which can be wholly
completed at a distance. A second course, `Databases for Historians', is about
to be piloted.

Curriculum on demand: an innovative teaching system based
on the finding that many students on continuing professional development
courses have highly specific needs that are only partially met by a group-
based course. Each student takes a course that is tailored to their specific
needs.

The TALL programme would welcome ideas for on-line courses from university
colleagues.

The Oxford University Research Services Office (RSO) is based in
the University Offices, Wellington Square (with a satellite
office in the Medical School Offices, Level 3, John Radcliffe
Hospital). The RSO is part of the Finance Division of the
University's central administration.

The RSO processes and approves all applications to outside
bodies for research grants and approves research-related
agreements on behalf of the University. It also acts in an
advisory capacity for those seeking outside funding or requiring
information about specific initiatives (e.g. LINK, ROPA, Teaching
Company Schemes, EU research programmes, etc.).

The RSO produces a weekly bulletin on funding opportunities,
electronic Research Funding News
(eRFN), which is available to members of the
University via the World Wide Web at:
http://www.admin.ox.ac.uk/rso/erin/. Research-related information
other than that regarding funding opportunities is communicated
via the RSO's electronic Bulletin Board, which is updated on an
ad hoc basis. This is also available to members of
the University via the World Wide Web at:
http://www.admin.ox.ac.uk/rso/oxonly/bboard.htm.

Research contracts with industry are negotiated through the
RSO, which deals with research-related agreements covering the
sponsorship of research, clinical trials, services to industry,
confidentiality issues, material transfer, and consultancy.
Contact details for members of the RSO are as follows:

Ms Catherine Quinn, Director (telephone: (2)70158, e-mail:

Submitting research grant applications to external sponsors

Members of the University are reminded that all applications for
external research funding support must be endorsed on behalf of
the University through the RSO before they are despatched to the
sponsor, whether or not this is required by the funding body.

The reasons for the requirement are (i) to ensure that the
funds being requested are adequate for the purpose and that the
costing rules of the sponsor have been applied correctly, and
(ii) to ensure that the University could undertake the
obligations arising from an award and that these do not
contravene University policy.

The detailed arrangements are as follows: applicants for
research grants should submit the original plus one copy of their
application, together with a completed copy of the University's
outside grants form, to the Research Services Office, Wellington
Square (telephone (2)70146), leaving three clear working days for
it to be processed.

In connection with the acceptance of awards and signature of
contracts it should be noted that Statutes, Tit. X, cl. 3,
provides that `no official of the University or any other person
employed by the University or working in or in connection with
any department of or under the control of the University shall
in connection with any invention, discovery, or patent, or ...
process, or manufacture have authority to make any
representations on behalf of the University or to be concerned
in any transaction whatsoever in connection therewith on behalf
of the University except with the express consent of Council'.

The Research Services Office has been given authority to
approve research funding applications to external sponsors and
the terms of contracts in straightforward cases under this
provision; in more complicated cases, specific authority is
necessary.

Enquiries related to any aspect of externally sponsored
research should be directed to the Research Services Office,
whose staff would be pleased to help.
