Key Dates Calendar for session 2017/18
In May 2017 a working group, with academic and professional service membership, reviewed the key dates calendar for session 2017/18. This has now been finalised and is available below:

Following feedback from the Deans of School, two ‘Helpful Dates’ and an ‘Academic Checklist’ have been prepared to assist academic colleagues in Trimester 1. Feedback is welcome and will inform the documents for Trimester2.

The key dates are also available in calendar format. Guidance for connecting this to your Outlook calendar is available here.
Further Enhancement Work:
Further work has been undertaken to develop the Key Dates Calendar:
1) Single Tier Boards
A recent decision was made by the Quality & Standards Committee to support the proposal to move to single tier board of examiner arrangements. As the timing and arrangements to implement this change are yet to be finalised, the key dates calendar continues to show module and programme boards and this will be updated once details are finalised.
2) Additional Key Dates
Work is underway to establish if further information should be included on the Key dates calendar, such as UCAS deadline, fit to sit deadlines and EC boards.
3) Format of the calendar
It has been noted that some colleagues find the current key dates calendar format difficult to use. In response to this feedback we are currently working with Information Service to explore how to make the calendar easier to engage with and to ensure key deadlines are more visible to colleagues. We will make enhancements as soon as we can.
