*Please note: Students studying in semester one only will be set alternative assessment in the case of a module with an exam. This means it may be possible to complete all assessment before the start of the winter vacation. Students will be able to leave from this date. Semester one contract dates for housing end at the official end date of the semester and any student selecting the option to live in University accommodation does so on the express understanding that they are liable for the full contracted period.

Please also note: Some coursework deadlines may be set in the first half of January. Students with deadlines after the winter vacation who have to leave London before these deadlines should endeavour to complete all assessment before they leave. If a student decides not to do this, the student must ensure that they submit the assessment via the agreed method of submission by the UK time of the deadline (ie Greenwich Meantime).
