Last week, we posted an article on the timetabling issues that you have been facing and would like to update you on what we have been doing as your elected officers to represent you. We know that, from speaking to so many of you, the frustration and confusion you have experienced due to lack of clear information on timetabling and poor communication.
We have since met with the Vice-Chancellor and Deputy Vice-Chancellors and had requested that a formal apology be issued to the students directly affected by the circumstances. We have also requested that all timetabling issues are resolved by 5pm on Friday 25th September.
We can very pleased that an apology to students has now been sent out by the University. In particular, a heartfelt apology from the Deputy Vice-Chancellor for Education was personally sent to students on courses with the Business & Law faculty who still had timetabling issues.
