  • 1See the General Board’s Notice of 27 July 2016, confirming approval of Health, Medicine, and Society as a subject for the M.Phil. Degree (Reporter, 6434, 2015–16, p. 802), which was published after the Graces proposing the fees for other courses had been approved. The Grace also corrects an error in the fee for Genomic Medicine for Home/EU students.

  • 2Statutes and Ordinances, 2015, p. 716. The proposed change of title is more reflective of the policy focus of the role and the Department’s research priorities, and widens the potential field of excellent international candidates (by not deterring those with environmental modelling and environmental policy specialisms) while retaining the focus and emphasis on applied analytic skills.

  • 3The Council, on the recommendation of the Chair of the Faculty Board of Mathematics and with the concurrence of the donor, has approved an amendment to widen the pool of those eligible to serve as Managers to members of the Faculty.

  • 4These changes update the list of Endowed University Lectureships by adding funds whose establishment was approved by Grace 1 of 11 November 2015 and Grace 3 of 2 June 2016.
