NUIG: Dissatisfaction with the layout of the Academic year 2014
This petition is to express our dissatisfaction with the layout of the Academic Year, especially with regard to the policy of essay deadlines being set for the end of Week 12. It is futile having a study week when most assessments have to be completedbeforeit occurs. In many subjects throughout the university, students have more assessments/essays due in Week 12 than exams to sit after study week. The aim of this petition is to demonstrate to University Management the amount of support that exists amongst students (and teaching staff) for the reinstatement of essay deadlines after study week as was best practice up to this Academic Year.
