Job title

Vice Chair




Gill Clarke's involvement in postgraduate education and related policy development began at a practical level in a research-intensive UK University. She has contributed to postgraduate policy level nationally and internationally and during a part-time secondment to the QAA's development and enhancement group from 2003 - 2008.  She chaired the working group responsible for revising section 1 of the 'QAA Code of Practice: Research degree programmes' (2004). This publication helped to bring about significant changes to the delivery and management of research degrees throughout the sector and has now evolved into Chapter B11 of the UK Quality Code on research degrees. Gill is currently involved in the work of several sector-wide organisations, including the UK Council for Graduate Education (vice-chair). She has contributed to European and Bologna-related doctoral (third cycle) events, including EUA-CDE and EuroDoc conferences and seminars and was a keynote speaker at the Quality in Postgraduate Research conference in Adelaide in April 2014.
