Dates of Council's meetings

Council has eight long meetings each year; these run from 10.30 am to 3.30 pm on Mondays of weeks 4 and 9 of each term (week 8 in Michaelmas Term) and in July and September. 

The shorter meetings (2.15 pm - 4.15 pm) are diarised for Monday of week 1 in each term to deal with urgent business that needs discussion, not just decision, but will only be held if needed.                                                                                                         

Extraordinary meetings may also be held at such other times as the Vice-Chancellor directs.
