Office Hours

The atmosphere in the Department is friendly and informal and it is usually very easy to contact individual members of staff. All academic staff post their ‘office hours’ on their staff webpages, specifying two regular periods per week when they will be available to meet with students. One of these periods will be online and the other face to face. You can also set up appointments at other times by emailing them.
