Length of the Teaching Day

Length of the Teaching Day

The teaching day will normally be from 09:00 to 18:00 on Mondays, Tuesdays, Thursdays and Fridays. Teaching on a Wednesday will run from 09:00 to 14:00. The University will work to minimise teaching sessions held on Wednesdays between 13:00 and 14:00 as far as possible, with the aim of delivering teaching from 09:00 to 13:00 only on a Wednesday. Students on work-based placements or on a small number of programmes with professional requirements may have scheduled teaching sessions on Wednesdays after 14:00. Where this is the case students with sporting or other commitments should discuss this with their tutor or lecturer.

Where lectures are re-scheduled (due to unavoidable absence or other event) and if the only available timetable slot is after 18:00 (or 14:00 on a Wednesday), lectures should be recorded and made available via Blackboard to all students. Scheduling additional sessions such as tutorials, seminars or other activity after 18:00 ( and after 14:00 on Wednesdays) is only permissible where there is an alternative timetabled session available for students to attend.

This does not apply to provision aimed at part-time students delivered in the evenings.
