Your lecturers and GTAs may have notified you of what will happen for their specific modules and seminars; if not, you are very welcome to ask them but please bear in mind that staff are not required to inform the College or students of their intention to strike. 

Where teaching is cancelled, we will ensure that it is possible to complete your summative assessment on topics for which teaching has taken place. Details of this will be shared with you soon.

For teaching not impacted by the industrial action, attendance will still be monitored as usual. The Student Attendance and Engagement Policy will continue to apply to all students. However, if you feel uncomfortable crossing a picket line to attend teaching, you should inform the department directly via

We expect libraries, computer rooms and services such as student services and advice to be available throughout the industrial action. Should you wish to, you might find it helpful also to engage in one or more of the following:

·         Set up a study group for your class. More information on how to do it is attached.

·         Attend your lecturers/personal tutor office hours outside of strike times.

·         Book a space on one (or more) of the academic skills workshops listed here

·         Book a one-to-one session with a Study Skills Leader
