Almanac

Almanac (2023-24, 2024-25)

The Almanac provides details of key University dates for the academic session, and is updated during the year, where necessary, to reflect any changes.

A timeline and forward planner for activities carried out by the SES Programmes and Assessment team is available for staff to download.

The University and LUU have identified a selection of key holy days and festivals. Staff should give appropriate consideration to these dates to try, where possible, to avoid planning significant events when some people would feel that their religious observance limits their ability to participate. Further information (including guidance on responding to requests from staff and students for flexibility on grounds of religion or belief) is available from the Equality and Inclusion Unit.

For further information about the Almanac, please contact the Secretariat (Helen Pickersgill)

You can download the year planner  here.
