Student Input and Representation
TSM, European Studies, Business Studies and Language students are each entitled to two class representatives (one for students in the first two years and one for students in the final two years; six in total) who are invited to attend regular Departmental meetings where they can raise issues or queries which have arisen in the student body.
Student Resources and Information
In 2013 it was agreed that student evaluation of undergraduate modules be mandatory and administered at Faculty or at a departmental level. Annual evaluation is mandatory for undergraduate modules, though school have discretion to choose which type of evaluation best suits their needs and to design their own questions. This reflects the view that there is better engagement with, and higher response rates from, surveys administered at a local level. Schools are required to report on the type of evaluation conducted for each module and how it communicated feedback to students and actions arising from the evaluation. As such, any comments or suggestions from students concerning modules offered in the Department are always welcome and will be carefully considered by the Department.

The department utilises a number of means in order to communicate with students. These are as follows:
- E-mail - Using students’ TCD e-mail addresses is the most frequently utilised channel of routine communication in College
- Departmental Notice Board - Information may be posted here periodically
- Post - This method will be used in exceptional circumstances. Please ensure that the department possesses up-to-date details of where you may be contacted
