The Faculty of Social and Behavioural Sciences is under the general management of the Dean. The Dean is part of the Faculty Management Team (FMT), along with the vice-Dean, the Faculty Director and a student.
The Faculty has five departments, each headed by its own Department Management Team (DMT). The DMTs include at least a teaching portfolio holder and a research portfolio holder. The portfolio holder also serves as the director of the relevant research institute or school. The DMT also includes a Managing Director and often a student, both of whom take part in an advisory capacity.
In turn, the five departments represent a number of divisions. Each division represents its own – more specific – scientific field. The divisions conduct both teaching and research activities. These divisions are headed by the Head of the Division (professor).
