Save Our Semesters
Reverse the 2017 decision to reduce the number of active teaching weeks each semester from 13 to 12.
Why is this important?
Students deserve a high quality education.
By reducing the number of teaching weeks the University is reducing quality face-to-face teaching time with our tutors and academics, and in addition reducing the time we have to complete assignments, study for exams and have a well rounded student experience. Being a student is already tough - cutting our semesters by a week will result in unnecessary stress and anxiety throughout the already intense semester.
We're calling on the University to reverse the 2016-2017 decision to reduce the number of active teaching weeks, and bring back our 13 week semesters.
