310th Statutory Meeting of the General Council

We hope you’ll take some time to watch the below recording of the first University Annual Meeting & Statutory Meeting of the General Council, which took place on Saturday 26 January 2019. This is the first time The General Council’s biannual Statutory Meeting has been combined with a University meeting and the format was a great success. We look forward to making this an annual event, taking place each January.
