Administrative history

General Convocation meets once a year and comprises the officers of the University and members of Court as well as members drawn from other educational institutions, business, local government, politics, Lord Lieutenants and the legal establishment. Audited financial statements for the previous year and a report by the Principal are presented to it. Convocation may discuss any matter relating to the University and convey its opinion to the Court. It appoints the Chancellor as Head of the University, and has the right to appoint four members to Court.

A list of the members of the General Convocation is published in the University calendar.
