1Statutes and Ordinances, p. 160. The proposed fee rates have been calculated on a revised basis which maintains the main principles from the existing sets of agreements with Island authorities but incorporates changes by the HEFCE to its funding methodology and a slightly lower premium for research institutions. The fee rates have been agreed between Universities UK and the authorities of the Channel Islands and the Isle of Man. The opportunity has been taken to include recent amendments to various courses (see the General Board's Notices on pp. 13, 95, 240, and 655).

2 See the Vice-Chancellor's Notice, p. 838.

3 See the Vice-Chancellor's Notice, p. 838.

4 The title of the Professorship and its assignment to a Faculty or Department were deferred until after the election had been made, so that the interests of the person elected could be taken into account. Professor Steiner has agreed to take up his Professorship on 1 September 2004.

5 Statutes and Ordinances, p. 670. In accordance with the Articles of the Scheme for the John Humphrey Plummer Foundation, when the holder of a John Humphrey Plummer Professorship retires the Professorship may be continued in the same or a different subject. The John Humphrey Plummer Professorships of Cell Biology and of Applied Numerical Analysis became vacant in 2001 on the retirement of the holders and applications for new Professorships were invited from persons working within very wide fields of study. Two new John Humphrey Plummer Professorships have subsequently been elected with the following titles: Developmental Biology (Grace 2 of 17 May 2000) and Physics of Materials (see Grace 4 above).

6 Statutes and Ordinances, p. 800. The popularity of the Norman Maccoll Lecture, which is on a subject in Hispanic or Portuguese studies, has declined in recent years and the Faculty Board of Modern and Medieval Languages have received a proposal from the Head of the Department of Spanish and Portuguese that the Lecture become the keynote paper in a research symposium, to be called the Maccoll Symposium, thus ensuring a better attendance. The regulations for the Lectureship have been amended to permit the use of any excess income in the fund to support such a symposium.
