We listened to Student feedback and the good news for next year is that we shall be providing longer teaching semesters to better support you in your studies and to help you plan further in advance. We have also provisionally approved calendars for 2018/19 and 2019/20; you should note however, these calendars are still subject to change. The Calendar now includes a Reflection Week, which is a time when you can approach your academic tutors to discuss your learning but that no formal teaching will be scheduled.
