Students should understand that part of any study programme requires an element of research on their part. As technology moves forward at a rapid pace a visit to the local library is no longer the chosen method of accessing information. Students are also expected to use the internet for research purposes and can expect to be referred to various blogs and websites such as YouTube and Google amongst other specific websites relating to their chosen subject. Tutors will not give you the answers to complete your assignments.
Students can expect to receive feedback on submitted assignments within 7 days. However, we expect delays on this timescale during holiday periods e.g Summer holidays July/August, bank holidays and Xmas. We appreciate your patience during these periods.
