*Please note that some courses may have non-standard start dates. Please refer to your offer letter for confirmation of the start date of your programme.

**International students sponsored under Tier 4, who are subject to restrictions on the number of hours they can work each week for immigration reasons, should be aware that the official University term dates and vacation periods relate to undergraduate courses only. Tier 4 students on any other type of course, including Postgraduate Taught and Postgraduate Research courses, should refer to http://go/immigration, or contact us using this form for further information about their rights to work in the UK. Exceeding the permitted number of working hours when studying in the UK under Tier 4 is a serious breach of the conditions of your visa.

 

Reading Weeks

Week 6 in Terms 1 and 2 is designated as a ‘Reading Week’ and no classes run in that week. The point of these weeks is to allow students more free time to research and read for their assignments and essays; and to allow academic staff to stay in touch with their own research and to conduct more intensive teaching preparation. Most academic staff will not be in the Department during these weeks and if you need to make urgent contact with them you should do this via e-mail in the first instance.
