New and returning students...

Welcome and Welcome back!

First group skype meetings of the term this weekend for all new and returning students - Alumni always welcome too if you're around!

The meetings will follow the pattern we set up last term to accommodate the growth of our MAPP community, with one AM and one PM session offered one the same Sunday, aiming to keep these running on the first Sunday of each month throughout the term.

Sunday Feb 1st Skype's:

11.00 UK time
19.00 UK time

Hopefully one of these times will work for you, where you are in the world, what your Sunday looks like...

Adesola co-ordinates the group Skype calls so please do make sure you have sent her a contact request ahead of the call so that she can call you. <aonthephone> Please do add a note to your request stating that you are a MAPP DTP student too!

If anyone has not been able to access the module handbook for the module you are starting this term - these are on our MAPP DTP programme page on UniHub - please let me know via email <>

Otherwise, I look forward to hearing from you all on Sunday and to starting this term together!

We will be in the Grove Dance Theatre (G190) Hendon Campus NW4 4BT

Parking on campus is extremely limited, I have requested spaces for those who have emailed me for this, though these are not guaranteed, drive up to the security barrier at the car park on Greyhound Hill and give your name/my name, you will be on their list, if there is space available they will let you know where you can park.  Alternative parking can be found in St.Joseph's Grove (alongside the side entrance to the University) parking is free on the left hand side of the road until 13.45, pay by phone all day elsewhere £4.

By tube - Hendon Central (Northern Line) then a 10minute walk up the hill to campus on The Burroughs.

A couple of our undergraduate student reps will be in the main reception area from 9am to take you over to the theatre.

If you have asked to join us via Skype, please be online 5 mins before the start of each presentation, I will check then and call you.  

Look forward to meeting some of you in person!

Submissions of work for the January deadline are all received - Thank-you and Well done to all of you!

Adesola and myself will aim to email you with feedback on the modules you have just completed by the end of January, your final grades will be published for you on UniHub towards the end of February.

So before withdrawing entirely from online presence and bury myself in marking(!), I thought some dates for your diaries for the next term may be useful.

Next group Skype for all new and returning students - 
SUNDAY FEB 1st - 11.00 and 17.30 UK time
