School of Social and Political Science: Graduate school


School Council

The SPS School Council represents all students and societies in SPS on matters which affect the School as a whole. The Council is run by three elected student convenors and works in cooperation with the Edinburgh University Student Association (EUSA).

It holds student discussions twice each semester to share ideas on how to make the student experience better. The convenors take these ideas back to the School and work to get them implemented.  The upcoming meeting dates for the 2017/18  academic year are:


The Council holds other events during the academic year which focus on making the most of your time as a student in SPS. The Convenors meet with SPS officials throughout the academic year to communicate student views and learn about developments in the School. They can also help direct students to resources within SPS.

The SPS Convenors in 2016/17 are:

  • School Convenor: Martyna Napierska (s1532691)
  • UG Vice Convenor: Adela Brianso Junquera (s1350025)
