Message for Glyndŵr University students studying at Wrexham & Northop campuses:
National Pay Dispute – information for Glyndŵr University Students
As you may be aware there is currently a national dispute with the staff unions on national negotiated issues. Consequently the University has been brought into this action collectively, and the action Glyndŵr University can take directly to resolve the dispute is limited. Inevitably there is a possibility that this will impact on the University and it has the potential to affect forthcoming examinations. Nevertheless, the University management will work hard to minimise any impact on you, our students.
At this time the University intends to continue as normal and run exams as per the published exam timetable. If any changes to the examination schedule are necessary you will be notified via your university email account and text message either by the Pro Vice-Chancellor (Operations) or the Superintendant of Examinations. Therefore please check your emails/text messages periodically.
We are in regular communication with your elected student representative, Penny Anderson, President of your Student Guild, to ensure that student interests are foremost in our planning. If you have any concerns or issues arising from this industrial action which need to be raised with the University, then please discuss these with the Guild President or your student (course) representative in the first instance.
Student Email Accounts – Reminder
The University will use students’ University email accounts to communicate important information to you. You are required therefore to check the email account at least twice a week and are advised to check it more regularly for communications from the University. In the lead up to examination and assessment periods it is recommended that you check your emails on a daily basis. Please be aware that you are responsible for ensuring that your University email account remains live. If you are experiencing any problems with accessing your University email account please contact the IT Help Desk immediately.
If you do not check your email account regularly you may miss important information about your programme, including events, cancellation of lectures or seminars, and assessments. The University will not be responsible for you missing information that has been sent to your University email account.
