The Front Office is the point of contact between students and academic and administrative staff. Front Office staff welcome students at events such as the spring 'open day', the july info day, and the welcome day and “0 lessons" on the first day of class in September. Throughout their degree course front office staff provide students with valuable back-up information to supplement department webpages. They inform students about courses and optional activities (internships / apprenticeships, seminars, elective subjects and tests, and workshops). They can also offer guidance to students who wish to re-enrol on courses after a break in their studies.
