Drop-in session to discuss Submission Pending for Sept 2019 & later on Friday 19th March at 14:00 via zoom
Only related to those starting in Sept/Oct 2019 or after.
We have previously agreed on changes to the way we implement the Submission Pending period to bring us more in line with University Regulations. You can find out more about Submission Pending and how it interacts with Extensions and Interruptions in the University regulations at https://www.staffnet.manchester.ac.uk/rbe/rdrd/code/ under 'Change to Degrees'.
There are still some questions on the regulations and so if you have questions please do come along to the drop in.

We have a Wellbeing Wiki where you can find out all manner of varied events and information. Have a look and see if there's anything that interests you.
And if not, I'm happy to hear suggestions or to search out stuff that you are interested in. You might want to start a group, or put on an event yourself? I am very happy to help you with it.
