Your Timetable

The college day runs from 8.40am - 4.10pm for most students. In addition, a few classes are scheduled between 4.20pm - 5.05pm on Mondays and Wednesdays only. Each timetable is individual and you will not be timetabled for all sessions – the examples give an idea of what different timetables might look like.

Your only obligation is to be in College for your timetabled sessions. However, many students find it easier to think of their non-contact periods as part of the College day and use this time to remain in College for independent study. The College offers free Wi-Fi so you can bring in your own laptops or tablets to work on, or use the library or open access IT facilities.
