Consultation Day

Consultation Days will be held on Friday, June 29th (UG) and Friday, July 6th (PG). If you have queries regarding your exam results, the Consultation Day is an opportunity for both academic staff and students to meet and discuss results. Please contact the School/Academic Discipline in advance to arrange an appointment. Many members of Academic staff may be away from their desks after the Consultation Day for research, academic business, or vacation, therefore, if you wish to discuss your exam results with your lecturer, these are the best dates to do so.

Don't forget!
