President Visit to School
The president will be visiting the school on the afternoon of Monday 10th May; from 2:45 to 3:30 there will be an open session for all staff in IT 407, which will include a short presentation and an extended question and answer session.
The university’s policy on Feedback to Undergraduate and Postgraduate Taught Students has now been published, for implementation in the forthcoming academic year. As such, academic staff and programme directors need to ensue that steps are taken, where required, to move towards compliance.
The school plan has been reviewed by faculty, and is thus no longer a draft. The plan forms the basis for the agendas of school leadership team meetings, and thus we will be tracking progress through the year.
