Bethan would like any undergraduate students who have found that they have lessons scheduled on a wednesday afternoon to email her on email@example.com.
This comes after a number of undergraduate students have contacted her raising the issue that they have had lectures scheduled in for times which the University's own policy prohibits.
The University's website states:
We do NOT schedule undergraduate lectures after 1pm on Wednesday. If you appear to have an Undergraduate lecture scheduled after 1pm on Wednesday you should contact your Department office - they will advise you
*** UPDATE 29/10/2014 ***
Education Officer, Bethan Hunt, brought the issue of Wednesday afternoon teaching to the attention of Pro-Vice Chancellor Clare Mackie.
Mackie obtained a list of all classes scheduled after 1pm on a Wednesday; explained that a few of the timetabling issues were with voluntary classes/extracurricular offerings or within the school of Social Work, where students have to be available on Wednesday afternoons for professional practice placements.
There were three areas that were identified as problematic; two of these are because of mixing of final year integrated masters students with postgraduate level 7 students.
Clare Mackie said:
I have asked Heads of School with clashes 1-3 listed above to attempt to reschedule, although I think it is unlikely to be achieved this term. I will ask Tim May to block the scheduling involving undergraduate students for next term.
