What is the role of the Chair of the Panel?

Modified on Wed, 17 May 2023 at 01:47 PM

The role of the Chair is to ensure that a fair and consistent approach has been delivered; a clear decision has been reached by the panel after considering the information that has been received and presented; and that an appropriate record of the event and decision is made.  

General examples of this include:

  • Ensuring the submitted papers are correct
  • Dealing with timings and keeping the hearing on track
  • Agreeing issues to be decided
  • Regulating behaviour
  • Coordinating questions (i.e. During the appeal, it is not expected that either party will be allowed to directly question each other. It is for the panel chair to determine the questioning allowed of others).
  • Ensuring the process is understood
  • Leading panel decision-making process
  • Drafting the recommendation to the Postgraduate Dean
