Seminar Group Change Request Form

You should be available for classes throughout the College’s teaching week (specified in the College timetabling policy). We will endeavour to ensure that the timetable is released sufficiently in advance of the commencement of teaching to assist students in making appropriate arrangements.

We will facilitate changes in your seminar group allocations when you have a timetable clash between classes on modules which count towards your award, or have accessibility needs (for example disabled access to a seminar room).

You can request to change semester 1, semester 2 and full year seminar groups until 27 September. You can also request to change semester 2 seminar groups from 2 December to 17 January. Any seminar change requests submitted during the Christmas College closure period will be responded to once Department Offices have re-opened.

In some other exceptional circumstances we will allow you to switch between seminar groups on a module. This is permitted on the following grounds:

  • Responsibilities as a carer or parent
  • Recurring medical appointments
  • Religious observance
  • Commitments to an employer already entered into before seminar groups are published, and which cannot be easily altered (we will ask for evidence of this).
  • Students who commute to College from a distance and who wish to request to change a seminar group will be considered on a case-by-case basis based on distance travelled as well as specified constraints (such as a space in a particular seminar group).

Before requesting a change, please ensure that your proposed change does not create a timetable clash, using the timetable systemAny moves between seminar groups can only be made where constraints permit it, and it is not guaranteed that you will be able to change.
