List of FAQs

+When do classes start and stop?

  • Timetabled sessions this academic year will be 45 minutes in length, starting at 5 minutes after the hour, and finishing ten minutes before the hour.
  • Students should not enter the room until 5 minutes before the scheduled start of class, so that air in the room has time to be refreshed. When and where possible, you should wait outside.
  • At the end of the session, students should exit the room promptly and away from the entrance so as not to cause crowding.
