Dissertations students will also be continuing with us of course – and if you are due to start your dissertation this semester, we will also be in touch with you in the next few days.
You’ll be hearing from course organisers directly, but I just want to take this opportunity to wish you all the best for your upcoming studies this year. We’re looking forward to it!
