Find out more about their role and responsibilities

What do they do?

They advise us if we face any challenges when it comes to applying our Scheme Rules or exercising discretionary matters under the rules. They are also involved in the determination of complaints in accordance with our service and complaints procedures. And they can recommend changes to the rules in some circumstances.

Who’s in the committee?

The committee is made up of six members. Three of these members are appointed by Universities UK (UUK) and the other three are from the University and College Union (UCU). The committee will also include a UUK and UCU appointed trustee director if it's determining a complaint.
