Clare Sheppard

Senior Educational Policy Officer

Together with the Head of Education Policy and Planning, I am responsible for the development and implementation of educational policies for undergraduate and postgraduate taught courses in the Medical Sciences Division. I also oversee quality assurance and enhancement arrangements for taught courses and the divisional Teaching Excellence Awards scheme, for which the Education Quality Assurance Officer has day-to-day responsibility.

I act as Secretary to the division’s Undergraduate Studies Committee (USC) and postgraduate taught (PGT) Course Directors Forum.

I work closely with the Chairs of USC, Directors of Undergraduate Studies, Undergraduate Studies Administrators, MSc Directors, Graduate Studies Administrators, Education Policy Support, Student Administration and the divisional Graduate School.

Please contact me for questions relating to:

  • Any aspect of educational policy relating to taught courses
  • Undergraduate Studies Committee and the PGT Course Directors Forum
