Notes:

  1. 1. A student reading week was introduced for the winter semester in 2017-’18 on a pilot basis to coincide with the October bank holiday week. The impact of the reading week on student engagement and performance will be monitored to inform future decisions on retention of this facility. This applies to all full-time teaching. However, part-time teaching may continue through this week.
  2. The reading week continues to be a working week for staff and will be used for mid-term Programme Boards meetings and reviews of student performance to date.
  3. 3. A two working day preparation period was introduced in 2017-’18 on a pilot basis between close of gradebook and start of spring semester teaching.
