• Modules starting in the morning and running up to 13:00, will start on the hour and finish at 50 minutes past the hour.
• Modules starting after 13:00 will start at 10 minutes past the hour and finish on the hour.
• These start and end times guarantee a minimum 20 minute break (12:50 – 13:10) in the middle of the day for staff and students whose sessions straddle the lunchtime period.
