Associated Bodies

The National Postgraduate Committee has associated bodies who are not recorded in the by-laws and are added or withdrawn at general meeting by simple majority vote.

Associate bodies can nominate an associate member who may submit motions to a general meeting with another associate member. Unlike recognised bodies as indicated in the by-laws, they do not have a vote at general meetings since they are not necessarily run by students or they may not satisfy other recommended criteria to achieve recognised body status.

The current associate bodies of the National Postgraduate Committee are as follows:

  1. The UK Council for Graduate Education
  2. The Political Studies Association Postgraduate Network
  3. The National Union of Students Scotland
  4. The National Union of Students Wales
  5. The National Union of Students-Union of Students in Ireland
  6. Psychology Postgraduate Public Affairs Group
