HEBDOMADAL COUNCIL 17 June

1 Decree (1) of 23 May 1996

Correction

The wrong footnote was inadvertently printed to Decree (1) of 23 May 1996 (Gazette, p. 1160). As originally printed in the Gazette of 25 April (p. 997), this footnote should have read as follows: `*This decree should be read in conjunction with the associated regulations made by the General Board and individual faculty boards, to be found on [Examination Decrees, 1995,] pp. 795–839.'

Explanatory note to Decree (2)

The following decree removes anomalies and makes consequential amendments to existing decrees which have been overlooked in recent legislation.

Decree (2)

1 In Ch. I, Sect. III, cl. 3 (a), concerning incorporation (Statutes, 1995, p. 192), after `Master of Engineering' insert `or a Master of Natural Sciences'.

2 Ibid., cl. 7 (5), delete `.' and substitute `;' and insert item (6): `(6) if the candidate is a Master of Natural Sciences of the University of Cambridge, a certificate showing the Part III Natural Sciences Tripos examination passed.'

3 Ibid., cl. 10 (p. 193), after `Master of Engineering', in each of the two places in which these words appear, insert `or Master of Natural Sciences'.

4 Ibid., cll. 10 and 11, in each case after `Ingeniaria' insert `or in Scientiis Naturalibus'.

5 Ibid., cl. 13 (p. 194), after `Master of Engineering' insert `or a Master of Natural Sciences'.

6 Ibid., cl. 16, after `Master of' insert `Biochemistry, Chemistry,' and after `Engineering' insert `, Mathematics, or Physics'.

[Clauses 1–6 above make amendments to the decree governing incorporation which are consequential on earlier changes providing for the incorporation of holders of the new Degree of Master of Natural Sciences of the University of Cambridge.]

7 In Ch. III, Sect. XXXV, cl. 4 (2), concerning the Environmental Change Unit (p. 290, as amended by Decree (4) of 14 March 1996, Gazette, p. 866), delete `with which ... General Board' and substitute `to which the directorship shall be for the time being allocated by Council under any decree in that behalf'.

[When legislation was enacted earlier this term to combine the post of IBM Director of the Environmental Change Unit with that of Professor of Environmental Studies, the need to provide for allocation of the joint post to a college by Council (in place of the association of the directorship with a college by the General Board) was overlooked.]

8 Ibid., Sect. LIII, cl. 6, concerning the Council for the School of Management Studies (p. 302), after the first paragraph insert: `The council shall have power to co-opt up to four additional members, who need not be members of Congregation.'

[Provision for co-optation was inadvertently omitted from the original decree establishing the council.]

9 In Examination Decrees, 1995, p. 127, l. 12, concerning admission to the Second Public Examination, delete `Part II' and substitute `the second part'.

[This change is consequential on the division of the examinations in Physics for the Honour School of Natural Science into Parts A and B rather than the previous Parts I and II.]

Explanatory note to Decree (3)

The following decree, made on the recommendation of the Law Board and with the concurrence of the General Board, provides for the abolition of the All Souls Readership in Roman Law from 1 October 1996. It has been agreed to use the resources which have in the past funded the readership towards the cost of the Directorship of the Centre for Socio-legal Studies after the readership falls vacant in September 1996.

Decree (3)

1 In Ch II, Sect. vi, § 1, SCHEDULE, concerning official members of faculty boards (Statutes, 1995, p. 230), under Law, delete `Law, Roman, All Souls Reader in.'

2 In Ch. VII, Sect. iii (p. 438), delete § 183, concerning the All Souls Reader in Roman Law, and renumber existing §§ 184–7 (pp. 439–40) as §§ 183–6.

3 This decree shall be effective from 1 October 1996.

Explanatory note to Decree (4)

The Curators of the Examination Schools have been reviewing their membership and terms of reference with a view to ensuring that the General Board's academic interest in the examining process is fed more effectively into the deliberations of the curators. The following decree, made with the concurrence of the curators, provides in cl. 1 that the Chairman of the Undergraduate Studies Committee of the Board or his or her nominee shall be a curator ex officio, and formalises the current practice under which the immediately preceding Junior Proctor joins the curators for their meetings. It reduces the period of office of elected members from six years to three years, and restricts eligibility to members of Congregation rather than of Convocation as at present. Cl. 2 amends the terms of reference of the curators. It also removes the power, which has become obsolete, to make arrangements for the use of rooms elsewhere for lectures and classes. Opportunity is taken in cl. 3 to correct an obsolete reference. As proposed by the curators, the staff of the Examination Schools have now been assimilated within the Central Administration, and cll. 4 and 5 make appropriate changes in the arrangements for the appointment of the Clerk of the Schools. Cl. 4 also deletes the requirement for the accounts of the curators to be submitted annually to the Auditors of the University's Accounts: these will now form part of the accounts of the Central Administration, which are audited like all university accounts as a matter of course.

Decree (4)

1 In Ch. III, Sect. XXXVII (Statutes, 1995, p. 291), delete cl. 1 and substitute: `1. There shall be seven Curators of the Examination Schools, namely:

(1) a member of Congregation appointed by Council, who shall be chairman;

(2) the Junior Proctor;

(3) the immediately preceding Junior Proctor;

(4) the Chairman of the Undergraduate Studies Committee of the General Board or his or her nominee;

(5)–(7) three members of Congregation elected by Congregation.

The chairman and the elected curators shall hold office for three years (except that casual vacancies shall be filled for the unexpired residue of the period of office of the member demitting office) and shall be re-eligible. In case of an equality of votes at any meeting of the curators the chairman shall have a casting vote.'

2 Ibid., delete cl. 2 and substitute: `2. The curators shall be responsible to Council and the General Board

(a) for the supervision of the Examination Schools and their precincts and shall make provision for the lighting, warming, water supply, and cleansing of the building;

(b) for the provision and management of the facilities therein for examinations, lectures, and all other purposes;

(c) for matters relating to the organisation of examinations within the Schools and associated premises, as referred to below; and

(d) for the supervision and monitoring of all funds made available to the curators.

The curators shall have power to make such charges for the use of rooms in the Schools as they shall deem reasonable, provided that no charge may be made for the use of rooms by the Vice-Chancellor or Council, or by professors, readers, or university lecturers, in discharge of their official duties. In the event of lack of space in the Schools for the holding of examinations, the curators shall have power to make arrangements for the use of rooms elsewhere.'

3 Ibid., cl. 3 (p. 292), delete `Ruskin School of Drawing and Fine Art' and substitute `Committee for the Archives'.

4 Ibid., delete cl. 4 and substitute: `4. The Clerk of the Schools shall be appointed by the Registrar in consultation with the curators.'

5 In Ch. IV, delete Sect. X (p. 339) and renumber existing Sectt. XI–XIII (pp. 340–1) as Sectt. X–XII.

6 This decree shall be effective from 1 October 1996.

Explanatory note to Decree (5)

The following decree, made on the recommendation of the General Board after consultation with the faculty boards concerned, reconstitutes the electoral board for the Professorship of Computing Science so as to include one fewer appointee of the Physical Sciences Board and an additional appointee of the General Board.

Over the last seven years, a much broader collaboration has developed between the Computing Laboratory and the Department of Engineering Science. These close links are recognised in Decree (7) below, providing for the Physical Sciences Board for the first time to appoint an elector to the chair of Numerical Analysis. The Physical Sciences Board's representation on the electoral board for the Professorship of Computing Science is, however, reduced from two to one to provide for an additional elector appointed by the General Board so that the balance is in line with the recommendations of the Working Party on Statutory Posts.

Decree (5)

In Ch. VII, Sect. III, § 45, cl. 2 (Statutes, 1995, p. 397), delete items (5)–(9) and substitute: `(5), (6) two persons appointed by the General Board;

(7), (8) two persons appointed by the Board of the Faculty of Mathematical Sciences;

(9) one person appointed by the Board of the Faculty of Physical Sciences.'

Explanatory note to Decree (6)

The following decree, made on the recommendation of the English Board and with the concurrence of the General Board, increases the electoral board for the Tolkien Professorship of English Literature and Language from seven members to nine. This is in line with the recommendations of the Working Party on Statutory Posts, and will help to ensure that the board provides a sufficiently wide representation from both inside and outside Oxford of the relevant fields of study.

Decree (6)

In Ch. VII, Sect. III, § 76, cl. 2 (Statutes, 1995, p. 407), delete items (5)–(7) and substitute: `(5), (6) two persons appointed by the General Board;

(7)–(9) three persons appointed by the Board of the Faculty of English Language and Literature.'

Return to List of Contents of this section


Explanatory note to Decree (7)

The following decree, made on the recommendation of the General Board and with the concurrence of Balliol College after consultation with the faculty boards concerned, reconstitutes the electoral board for the Professorship of Numerical Analysis so as to include an appointee of the Physical Sciences Board and an additional appointee of the General Board. The enlargement from a seven-member to a nine-member board, in line with the recommendations of the Working Party on Statutory Posts, recognises the close links which have developed between the Computing Laboratory and the Department of Engineering Science and also gives the opportunity to broaden representation and to increase external membership.

Decree (7)

In Ch. VII, Sect. III, § 230, cl. 2 (Statutes, 1995, p. 452), delete items (5)–(7) and substitute: `(5), (6) two persons as appointed by the General Board;

(7), (8) two persons appointed by the Board of the Faculty of Mathematical Sciences;

(9) one person appointed by the Board of the Faculty of Physical Sciences.'

Explanatory note to Decree (8)

The following decree updates the list of benefactors commemorated in the Bidding Prayer, to correspond with the list on the plaques in the archway of the Clarendon Building, and translates the list into English. Only deceased benefactors are commemorated in the prayer. The names of living benefactors and of institutions are recorded in the album of benefactors. The list will continue to be read in Latin at the Latin Sermon.

Decree (8)

In Ch. XI, Sect. I (Statutes, 1995, p. 693), delete § 9 and substitute:

`§ 9. Commemoration of Benefactors

1. The preacher, in a prayer before the sermon on the first Sunday after the beginning of term and in the sermon on the morning of the Sunday preceding Encaenia, shall make a grateful commemoration of the benefactors of the University, that is to say of Thomas Cobham Bishop of Worcester, Cardinal Henry Beaufort Bishop of Winchester, Prince Humphrey Duke of Gloucester, Cardinal John Kempe Archbishop of Canterbury, Thomas Kempe Bishop of London, Margaret Countess of Richmond, King Henry VII and Elizabeth his Queen, Richard Lichfield, Cardinal Thomas Wolsey Archbishop of York, King Henry VIII, Queen Mary, Queen Elizabeth I, King James I, Sir Thomas Bodley, Sir Henry Savile, Sir William Sedley, Sir Nicholas Kempe, Thomas White, William Camden, Richard Tomlins, William Heather, William third Earl of Pembroke, John Lord Craven of Ryton, King Charles I, Edward first Earl of Clarendon, William Laud and Gilbert Sheldon Archbishops of Canterbury, Henry Earl of Danby, Elias Ashmole, Henry Birkhead, King George I, John Radcliffe, Nathaniel third Lord Crewe Bishop of Durham, William Sherard, Richard Rawlinson, Charles Viner, George Henry third Earl of Lichfield, Charles Godwyn, John Bampton, Francis second Lord Godolphin, John Sibthorp, George Aldrich, John Wills, Richard Gough, King George III, Joseph Boden, Anne Kennicott, Francis Douce, Sir Robert Taylor, Robert Mason, John Ireland Dean of Westminster, John second Earl of Eldon, Chambers Hall, Frederick William and Ellen Hope, John Hall, Henry Houghton, Felix Slade, John Henry Parker, Martha Combe, Charlotte Sutherland, William fourth Earl of Ilchester, John Ruskin, Joseph Bosworth, Augustus Henry Lane-Fox-Pitt-Rivers, Charles Drury Edward Fortnum, Rebecca Flower Squire, Cecil John Rhodes, Alfred Beit, Charles James Oldham, Charles and Maria Jane Theodore Williams, Christopher Welch, Thomas second Earl Brassey, Walter Morrison, Ingram and Charlotte Bywater, Henry Wilde, Maria Louisa Medley, Charles Day Dowling Gibbs, Arturo Serena, Walter William Rouse Ball, Charles Marten Powell, Walter Gordon, Sir Arthur Ernest Cowley, Thomas Whitcombe Greene, Kenneth Grahame, Charles Frederick Nolloth, George Flood France, Francis Llewellyn and Nora Griffith, Sir Heath Harrison, George Claridge Druce, Alice Mary May, Emily Georgiana Kemp, George Herbert Fowler, John Beeston Lockey, Sir Arthur John Evans, Herbert Edward Douglas Blakiston, Raymond William and Hope ffennell, Amy Georgina Hartland, Antonin Besse, Gaspard Oliver Farrer, John Francis Mallet, Cecil Jackson, Sir John Rhys and Olwen his daughter, Edward Harry William Meyerstein, Eric Otto Winstedt, Henry Norman and Nellie Maud Emma Spalding, Florence Weldon, Sir Montague Maurice Burton, Jacob Patrick Ronaldson Lyell, Sir Ernest Oppenheimer, Sir Herbert Ingram, William Richard Morris Viscount Nuffield, Georges van Houten, James Albert Billmeir, Charles Watson Boise, Claude Jenkins, David Randall-MacIver, Henry Lord Sanderson, Francis Falconer Madan, Gerald Averay Wainwright, Rudolph and Ann Light, Wilfred Augustine Handley, Theodore Deodatus Nathaniel Besterman, Emma Frederica Isabella Dunston, Jeffery Stokes Story, Samuel Glasstone, René Hugo Thalmann, John Gilbert Winant II, and Jane Ledig-Rowohlt, together with any further benefactors whose names shall be added from time to time by Council by decee.

Explanatory note to Decree (9)

The following decree, made on the recommendation of the General Board after consultation with faculty boards, etc., allows examiners to reduce (within the limit stated) the mark of a thesis (or other work) submitted late for a written examination, subject to the permission of the Vice-Chancellor and Proctors. Under the current regulations, the Proctors are faced with a choice between allowing a late submission, for which a candidate is liable to pay a small fee, and refusing to allow it, with the effect that the candidate is deemed to have withdrawn from the examination. Late submissions have increasingly become a problem, and it is expected that the possibility of an academic penalty in addition to a late-submission fee will deter candidates from making late submissions and the situation will be remedied. Unless the legislation is opposed, the Proctors will draw up guidance for examiners on the implementation of the new arrangements.

Decree (9)

1 In Examination Decrees, 1995, p. 1043, after l. 37 insert: `Thereafter, the examiners may reduce the mark by up to one class (or its equivalent) if and only if

(1) they have been given leave to do so by the Vice-Chancellor and Proctors and

(2) they are satisfied that such action is warranted by the evidence forwarded to them by the Vice-Chancellor and Proctors.'

2 This decree shall be effective from 1 October 1996.

Explanatory note to Decrees (10) and (11)

The Department for Education and Employment has announced that the maximum fees reimbursable through the awards system for home and EU undergraduates in 1996–7 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 1996–7 will be £2,490 (compared with £2,430 in 1995–6). Decree (10) gives effect to these changes.

Council has already made a decree setting the level of fees for overseas students in 1996–7 (Decree (9) of 25 May 1995, Gazette, Vol. 125, p. 1169). Opportunity is taken in cll. 1 and 3 of Decree (10) to delete the obsolete reference to the fee for members of the University working on the course for Hong Kong Probationary Administrators, which has now been discontinued, and to set the fee for Recognised and Visiting Students, which is half the Category A rate (i.e. £3,075 in 1996–7). Cl. 4 sets the fee for members of the University working on the Foreign Service Course at the Category B rate (i.e. £8,150 in 1996–7). Decree (10) also makes provision in cl. 5 for the level of university fee to be charged for the Diploma Course in European Studies (intended primarily for Japanese managers).

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 have now reviewed the position for 1997–8 and, on the recommendation of their joint Resources Committee and with the concurrence of the International Committee, have agreed that overseas fees for 1997–8 should be increased by 2.75 per cent (and rounded) as follows:


 

(1996–7) £ £ `Arts' courses 6,300 (6,150) `Science' courses 8,400 (8,150) Clinical courses 15,400 (15,000)

Decree (11) provides accordingly.

Notification has not as yet been received of the arrangements which will apply in 1996–7 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 1995–6.

Decree (10)

1 In Examination Decrees, 1995, p. 1049, delete l. 11 and renumber existing items (xiii)–(xv) (ll. 12–14) as items (xii)–(xiv).

2 Ibid., p. 1053, 1. 14, delete `For 1995–6' and substitute `For 1996–7'.

3 Ibid., p. 1054, delete ll. 1–2 and substitute: `(d)for Recognised and Visiting Students, £3,075;'.

4 Ibid., l. 3, delete `£7,890' and substitute `£8,150'.

5 Ibid., l. 5, delete `£14,785' and substitute `£15,200'.

6 Ibid., l. 8, delete `For 1995–6' and substitute `For 1996–7'.

7 Ibid., l. 11, delete `£2,430' and substitute `£2,490'.

8 This decree shall be effective from 1 September 1996.

Promulgation of Statutes

Explanatory note to Statute (1)

The following statute, and the decree to be made by Council if the statute is approved, which are promoted on the recommendation of the Delegates of the University Press, make certain changes to the current legislation governing the delegates and their Finance Committee:

(1) they increase from four years to five the full period of office for members of the Finance Committee who are also delegates (i.e. those who are not `external' members of the committee), five years being the full period of office for delegates, while maintaining the provision that periods on the committee and the delegacy should be coterminous (see cl. 4 of the decree);

(2) they reduce from four periods of five years to three such periods the maximum length of continuous service on the delegacy, from first appointment as a delegate, for the Chairman of the Finance Committee (see cl. 2 of the statute);

(3) they extend eligibility for election as chairman of the committee to former delegates with recent experience on the committee (see cll. 2 and 3 of the decree), and provide for such a chairman to become a supernumerary delegate (see cll. 1 and 3 of the statute and cl. 1 of the decree), provided that such a chairman shall serve in that capacity for only one five-year period (see cl. 5 of the decree).

Explanatory note to Statute (2)

In the drafting of the statute to change the previous cycle for the election of the Proctors and the Assessor by the addition of four new societies, which was approved by Congregation on 28 May (Gazette, pp. 1165, 1196), account was inadvertently not taken of the fact that the insertion into the cycle of Kellogg College as the society to elect the Assessor for 2003–4 should have led to its subsequent insertion as one of the societies to elect the Proctors for 2016-17. The following statute corrects this anomaly.

 

(2) WHEREAS it is expedient to correct an anomaly in recent changes to the cycle for the election of the Proctors and the Assessor, THE UNIVERSITY ENACTS AS FOLLOWS.

In Tit. IX, Sect. VI, § 1, cl. 3, SCHEDULE (Statutes, 1995, p. 66, as amended by Statute (2) approved by Congregation on 28 May 1996, Gazette, pp. 1165, 1196), delete the last two lines and substitute:

OPPORTUNITIES FOR EXTERNAL RESEARCH FUNDING

British Council (Spain): Acciones Integradas 1997–8

British/Spanish Research Collaboration Programme

The Acciones Integradas programme, which is jointly funded and administered by the British Council in Spain and the Spanish Ministry of Education and Culture, offers the opportunity for research groups in the two countries to initiate collaboration. It is expected that subsequent funding will be sought from other sources, such as the European Union.

Prospective applicants should have already identified the research group in Spain with which they would like to collaborate, as applications have to be made concurrently by the British and Spanish partners. Applicants must also show that there is an agreed project proposal. Grants are available to contribute towards international travel and subsistence costs only.

Application forms and guidance notes for the new Acciones Integradas programme can be obtained from the Research Grants Office (telephone: (2)70146).

Further information can be obtained from the British Council, Madrid (telephone: 0034-1-337-3559, fax: 0034-1-337-3560, e-mail: bc.madrid@british-council.sprint.com).

OTHER GRANTS

BRITISH ACADEMY

Research Readerships and British Academy/Leverhulme Trust Senior Research Fellowships in the Humanities and Social Sciences

The British Academy has announced that, under its scheme for Research Readerships, it intends to confer on `serving members of academic staff' the title of British Academy Research Reader. There will be nine awards tenable for two years from 1 October 1997. The Readerships will be awarded on a competitive basis and are not renewable.

In addition, the Academy has announced that, continuing the scheme for Senior Research Fellowships begun in 1990–1, it intends to confer, again on members of academic staff, the title of British Academy/Leverhulme Trust Senior Research Fellow. Under this scheme there will be seven awards tenable from 1 October 1997, of one year's duration. In exceptional circumstances awards may be extended to a maximum of two years.

Applicants will need to submit a programme of research for the Research Readerships and Senior Research Fellowships in one or more of the following fields; the ancient world (all aspects, including archaeology); history (of all periods, and including the history of art, music, ideas, science, etc.); philosophy; religious thought; language; linguistics; literature; law; economics; politics; sociology; psychology; anthropology; geography.

All award-holders are relieved of all teaching and administrative duties, but may engage in limited supervision of research students.

While they hold the relevant academy title, award-holders of Research Readerships and Senior Research Fellowships will continue to receive their normal stipend, and their employing institutions will be expected to provide them with all the facilities necessary to enable them to carry out their research programme. Under the Research Readership scheme, the academy will meet the cost of substitute teaching in a form to be agreed up to a maximum sum equivalent to the sixth point of the current national Lecturer A scale in year one, and the seventh point in year two; under the Senior Research Fellowship scheme the academy will meet the agreed costs of substitute teaching up to the sixth point on the university lecturer scale. Detailed arrangements in any particular case will have to be considered by the University and the college concerned, and in consultation with the academy, once it is known that the application is successful.

The normal age-range for candidates for Research Readerships and Senior Research Fellowships is from the mid-thirties to the late forties, but in respect of both schemes the academy will continue to look sympathetically on outstanding candidates over fifty who should set out in their submission the special circumstances that are thought to apply. Applicants are not discouraged from applying for the Research Readerships and the Senior Research Fellowships simultaneously, but in such cases two sets of separate and fully self-contained applications should be submitted, with the research project in each case tailored to the duration of the award.

Applications under all schemes must be submitted through the University or through the college (for CUF lecturers). Applicants holding joint appointments must, however, obtain the support both of the University and of the college concerned. The University will advise the academy separately of its support for an application by a CUF lecturer.

Further details and application forms in respect of the schemes are available from the appropriate faculty board secretaries, to whom applications should be returned as soon as possible. The academy's closing date for the receipt of applications is 31 July 1996.

Applicants will be informed of the results of their applications by the academy in December 1996.
