The tutorial times could be arranged to suit student availability.


Weekly tutorials are scheduled by Timetabling and cannot be changed to suit student preferences. However, at the start of term, students will be surveyed to determine when the majority of students can attend additional, drop-in tutorials. Where necessary, these tutorials will be recorded for those who cannot attend.
