A reminder about cheating and collusion

You must not confer with fellow students or any other individuals during the exam. We trust you. However, if there is a concern that you have not followed the code of conduct expected, the College has a range of options at its disposal. The College reserves its right to impose additional forms of assessment including individual student vivas, if required. These may also be used to assist the examiners and the Boards of Examiners in assuring that the assessment process has been conducted fairly and in accordance with the agreed marking schemes. You are reminded that if we become aware of proposed or evidenced actions for collusion that such allegations will be reported and investigated in accordance with the College’s Academic Misconduct Procedure.

Industrial placements are now running. Information about deliverables and supervisor contact can be found on Blackboard

If you have any problems please email Clare Drysdale.

Third year group project

Group projects are now running. We are looking into setting up a virtual Hackbooth.

If you have any problems with the project please email Clare Drysdale.

Third and fourth year coursework

Module leaders have changed their marking criteria in order to accommodate non-completion of hardware in the labs. The vivas (via Skype mainly) will probe understanding rather than the functioning of the hardware. If you have a working prototype, we will allow you to demonstrate what you have achieved.

Please check your emails for messages from your module leader.

PhD students

If you need access to department premises, unless you are part of the two week trial reopening of laboratories from (11 May), you will need to apply to Professor Yeatman for permission, with justification. There will have to be a specific and strong reason (e.g. to collect some item that could not be collected earlier). He will not be able to give consent to allow you to carry on your research in the department’s laboratories, even if the this will seriously impact your work. We will work together to find ways to work productively under these exceptional constraints.

Please contact your supervisor/co-supervisor in order to put in place the necessary arrangements that would allow you to work remotely. We are working with the Faculty to discuss available options for PhD students, and will email you as soon as we have more information, so please look out for updates.
