The college day runs from 8.40am to 4.10pm for most students. In addition, a few classes are scheduled between 4.20pm and 5.05pm on Mondays and Wednesdays. Each timetable is individual and you won’t 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, but many students find it easier to think of their non-contact periods as part of the college day and use them for independent study. The college offers free wireless access to the internet so you can bring in your own laptops or tablets to work on, or use the library or open access IT facilities.
