Final year students’ calendar may differ as a result of campaigns, specialist briefs and our internship programme. Final year students also don’t break for the 15 – 26 September recess. Our staff will be available during this period.

Graduation will be early in March, more information to follow.

Let the fun begin. This is your chance to meet and make new friends, get to know your lecturers, get to grips with the coming year, and explore our campuses. It’s compulsory for all full time students to attend Whack Week.

Whack Week runs from Monday, 30 January to Friday, 3 February 2017.
