One of the end results from our final year team project module…

There haven’t been many updates during the year but that’s about to change… as we near the end of the academic year lots of interesting work is going to be coming in that I’ll be showcasing. Keep checking back over the next couple of months! In fact, hold on one second…

Another new year…

Well, the 2012/2013 academic year is upon us! Freshers week starts next year so I thought I’d put together some useful information. Some of it for the newbs (not noobs!) and some for those are already here but didn’t yet know about it…

Induction week (a.k.a freshers week)

1st years come in at 12:15 on the Monday, and head for CWS/10. See this map of campus if you don’t know where canalside west is. This is a final plan for the week… DM Induction Timetable 12-13

Returning 1st years (e.g if you suspended last year) (DM Year 1 Repeating Students 12-13), returning 2nd years (DM Returning Students 12-13), come in 10am, Wednesday 19th.

Returning from placement, come in at 12:15 on Wednesday 19th (DM Returning Students 12-13)

Final years (inc. those who’ve been on placement), come in 14:15 on Wednesday 19th. (DM Returning Students 12-13)

You might want to check out the Student Union to see what they are doing during the week… http://www.huddersfield.su/

If you get lost look out for the student helpers, they’re usually in orange tee shirts. Also, you could email me (duke@hud.ac.uk), I have push email so I should be able to get it and reply very quickly.

Timetables

Seem to be settling down now, you can probably find yours, or at least look for it, at http://unitimetable.hud.ac.uk/default.aspx – be aware though that changes are still happening, mine changed again yesterday! Please be patient with it, it will be settled by next week.
