Update on progress with the Academic Calendar consultation

Wednesday 4 October 2023
  • The survey closed on Saturday 30 September with 4187 respondents – thank you for your efforts in encouraging engagement with this.
  • We have also invited Heads of Schools and Heads of Service Units to provide their operational and management feedback on the models.
  • We are using this week for final wrap up discussions, including a meetings with EDI Directors from the Schools and with Directors of Teaching.
  • Analysis of the feedback is ongoing, including free text commentary from the survey and feedback from discussions, pop-up activities and School and Unit level considerations.
  • The project team will over the coming fortnight be reviewing the feedback from which a proposal will be taken to PO SMT for consideration in the latter part of October, after which we will be able to communicate to the broader university community the direction of travel.
  • We shall provide a high level overview of where we are with the project via SharePoint, Education Blog and the Students’ Association EduComm channels.
  • The project team may be a little quieter over the coming fortnight as we shift from active discussions, engagement and awareness building, to reviewing and interpreting the feedback and pulling together a proposal to take forward for consideration – it is likely we will seek your feedback on this before it is shared further.
