Important update: module changes deadline 9th July

Over the last few weeks we updated you on the plans for schools to contact you around changes that might be happening to your courses for the next academic year.

We understand that for some students this will involve a big change to their studies. For others this will only be a minor change but regardless of this, it is really important that you get your module changes completed before the deadline on the Thursday 9th July.

As we have said before, make sure you do the following regularly:

  1. Check your emails regularly to ensure you access the information about how you are affected, before the 9th July.
  2. If you don’t understand the changes, contact your school using the contact info provided in your email.
  3. If you are concerned about how the change affects you personally or need further help understanding what it means, you can get in touch with advice(su) here and our advisors can support you in exploring your options.
  4. If you want to raise a course, school or faculty level issue, use the form here and our officers will raise your concern with school or faculty leads, or university senior management as required.
  5. If you feel worried about coming back for whatever reason – money, health, caring responsibilities – speak to your school to see what they can do to support you to learn remotely.
  6. As your student union, we want to understand how you feel about the changes being made and how those changes are being communicated, so please also use the form to share your feedback with us good or bad.

We have also been working with the university to provide answers to you question around raising complaints. If you feel that you have an issue you want to raise, and it hasn’t been addressed informally, then you would find the link to FAQ’s surrounding raising complaints here.

The SU will continue to provide you with up-to-date information on any deadlines and information to help you make informed choices about changes to your learning and your rights as a student. Remember to do the following:

  • Check your emails regularly.
  • Ask questions to your school if you are unsure
  • Raise concerns if you are feeling unsure about returning
  • Make sure you submit your module changes by 9th July.

Take care of yourselves.
