University Policies & Resources

CLASS POLICY

Treat this class like you would a job.
Act professional = be on time, be prepared, participate, perform.

——————————————————————-

It is the student’s responsibility to know the policies and procedures, which are available online HERE. Policies and regulations explain what you should do if you end up in situations such as:

  • you’re in the hospital and can’t come to class
  • you can’t complete your assignment by the deadline
  • you need to retake an exam/assessment
  • you want to make a complaint or an appeal
  • you have plagarised or cheated
  • you don’t pay your fees
  • you need to drop the class

And just in case you missed it, it is your responsibility to make sure you follow these policies and procedures correctly and in a timely manner. Additional information not covered in the above link can be found here.

CAMPUS RESOURCES

Visit the following links for information on:

BLASC

    Business and Law Academic Skills Centre

WHAT IS BLASC?

BLASC is a drop-in service offering students at all levels help and advice on the academic skills needed to produce their written coursework. The drop-in is staffed by lecturers, writing specialists and third year students from the Business and Law schools.

 

WHERE IS BLASC AND WHEN IS IT OPEN?

The BLASC desk is on the ground floor of the Nightingale Centre (LRC).  There is no need to book.

 

WHAT HELP CAN I GET?

BLASC offer advice and guidance on the steps to take to improve your written assignments. In particular, we help with grammar, academic structure, referencing, and plagiarism.

 

WHEN SHOULD I VISIT?

The sooner the better!  BLASC is not a last minute proof-reading service, so your assignment does not have to be almost finished before you bring it to the desk.  Our advisors can look at work from an early stage – just make sure it’s printed and not on your laptop.  PLEASE NOTE: in order for you to make the most of your visit to BLASC and to have adequate time to work on any changes, we will not look at drafts within two working days of their hand-in date.

 

WHAT OTHER HELP IS AVAILABLE?

We also offer the following:

 

ENGLISH LANGUAGE SUPPORT FOR INTERNATIONAL STUDENTS

An advisor from English Language Support for International Students is at the BLASC desk on Tuesdays 1-3 and Fridays 11-1. You can also enrol on an English Language course; just contact Kathryn Richardson at: k.richardson@kingston.ac.uk

 

MathsAid:  Struggling with statistics?  Nonplussed by numbers?  Phil Graham has a background of using mathematics/statistics/QM in business environments. He can also help with accounting, financial management and other business related queries.  Ask at the LRC Main Enquiry Desk for details of when and where to find him.

 

BLASC WEBSITE

The BLASC website has detailed information on opening hours, as well as information on many areas of academic writing.  It can be accessed via Study Space/Your Studies/Study Support/Academic Skills Centres or by typing in the following URL: <http://staffnet.kingston.ac.uk/blasc/>
