Communications with staff

You should feel free to contact your lecturer about any academic matter. However, for efficiency, all enquiries about the subject material should be made at lectures or tutorials or during consultation time. Discussion of course subject material will not be entered into via lengthy emails. All inquiries regarding tutorial changes and tutorial administrative questions should be directed to your tutor. If you want to change tutorial group, you must contact the tutor for the session you want and ask for availability of seats. Once that is confirmed and the tutor agrees with the move, you must notify both tutors of the change so that they can update their lists.
