Group Project Starts Tonight + Work Placement Info

Hi folks,
The first Group Project class will be held this evening from 7:00 in KA 3-008. If you are taking the Group Project, or even if you think you might be applying for exemption for work placement, please attend this evening. Exemptions are not guaranteed until they are accepted, so please keep options open as long as possible.

On that note, can everyone in DT265A year 2 please fill out the brief survey here as soon as possible. So far only 5 of the class have filled this out.

This evening at 6:00 Jonathan will be holding a regular Individual Project Session. There won't be a session on Work Placement. Iseult is setting things up and will be in contact with more information shortly.

DT265A - Year 2 - Quick Questionnaire on Group Project or Work Placement

Hi there,
For all those in DT265A Year 2, i.e., part-timers who are now taking their specialism stream, we need you to confirm if you will be opting for Work Placement or the Group Project options.

Basically you need to take the Group Project Option if (a) do not want to take Work Placement; or (b) cannot take Work Placement due to your existing Work obligations. if you are already in a suitable job, you can apply for an exemption. But a suitable job is not simply working for a Tech Company, your job must be deemed suitable for a Work Placement, and thus must be a strong IT role.

Please fill in your preference below before Wednesday afternoon:

It is very important that you indicate this choice. There is some room to change your choice in the next week or two, but we do need your initial preference.

Thanks in advance
