This is the time of year when we are in transition. Staff are assessing student dissertations that have been submitted from the previous cohort and at the same time preparing for the new students that arrive in September. We usually welcome a bunch of people from the UK, and a whole host of people from around the globe; France, Latvia, Pakistan, India, Japan, Malaysia, Taiwan, China, Russia to name a few. So there will be another fantastic mix of students to share stories, experiences, to make friends and to learn with. The Programme Leaders for this session are Dr John Connell (MSc Marketing) and Linda Shearer (MSc International Fashion Marketing).
Induction details will have been sent to new students and we look forward to meeting you this week. As there are two intakes there are also students who began their studies in January 2012. For continuing students, semester starts Monday 10th of September. MSc Marketing students will meet John at 11am in room MS225 and Linda will be in touch with IFM students.
