For staff


New role will lead student support services within the Academic Division of the UAS.

Head of Education Services is a new role that brings together the strategic, policy-related and operational support of the University’s educational activities in advance of the opening of the Student Services Centre in Spring 2019. The Head of Education Services will work closely with the Senior Pro-Vice-Chancellor (Education), Registrary and other colleagues within the UAS as well as those across the Schools, departments and faculties.

Education Services, which is part of the Academic Division, includes the Cambridge Admissions Office, the Graduate Admissions Office, the Cambridge Centre for Teaching and Learning, Student Operations and Educational and Student Policy, and a number of dedicated support services such as the Disability Resource Centre and University Counselling Service. One of the objectives of the new role will be to make sure the student-related services provided centrally are integrated fully with those in other areas of the university.

Alice joined the University administration in 1989 working at the Old Schools, amongst other things supporting the Registrary with work for the Council and Finance Committee. She has also worked in the School of Biological Sciences as Deputy School Secretary and Secretary of the Faculty Board of Biology, and was ‘hands-on’ in running the Medical and Veterinary Sciences Tripos and biological Natural Sciences Tripos. In her current role as Head of Education and Student Policy, Alice supports the work of the Senior Tutors’ Committee as well as being responsible for quality assurance of University teaching.  

Emma Rampton, the Registrary, said: “Given her deep and broad understanding of the collegiate University, Alice is exceptionally well placed to integrate the different elements of our teaching and learning support. With the benefit of Alice’s leadership, we will continue to progress the ambitious student-related initiatives under way. It is fitting that one of the first projects due to be completed once Alice takes up her role on 1 January 2019 is the Student Services Centre, which Alice has been instrumental in developing and delivering. I am delighted that Alice has been appointed and it will be a privilege to be able to work with her in her new capacity.”
