Useful Contacts

An individual's personal tutor should be the main contact for general academic, development and personal queries. Personal tutors also provide advice and support for students considering making a formal claim of Extenuating Circumstances.

School staff can answer general course-related queries via our contact page.

Should you wish to notify the school of short-term illness or absence from an exam please contact Student Services (contact details are below).

All enquiries about particular modules should be addressed to the Module Convenor.
