Additional Bank Holidays in 20118/19 – these are public holidays that fall outside College holidays, so there will be no classes on these dates: 19 April, 22 April, 6 May, and 27 May 2019

Staff Development Days in 2018/19 – these are staff training days not attached to College holidays, when there will be no classes: 26 October 2018, 7 January 2019, 5 April, 2019, 1 & 2 July 2019.

Additional non-teaching days: 2 days each academic year will be allocated for student progress reviews, so classes will be replaced on those dates with individual appointments with Personal Tutors. Dates will be confirmed to students during the first term.

Please note: Holidays are not permitted during term time, but international students are entitled to up to 5 days “Extra Leave” each academic year, which are usually added on to College holidays to enable students to return home to visit their families. Students are advised not to book flights to return home at the end of their course before the ‘end of term’ date specified, as certificate presentations and awards events are usually scheduled during the final week of the course.
