Would you like to move exams before Christmas?

At this year's Annual General Meeting, RGU students put forward the motion to 'Change the academic calendar, and move exams before Christmas'. The motion passed with a clear majority, with an amendment to gather further feedback from students.

RGU:Union is looking to make this change, but before we begin working on this issue, we want your feedback on whether you think this change should go ahead or not. 

We have already lobbied the university to block the approval of calendars for 2017/18 and 2018/19 by Academic Council. The change would take a while to implement, so we are aiming for a 2018/2019 change. The change would not take place in 2016/17. 

Please spread the word and encourage as many submissions as possible
