Staff communication with students

There are many ways of staying in touch with members of the French department, and, equally, many points of information you will need at various points in the year. All staff have regular consulation hours (see departmental noticeboard), are in email contact and can be met on the basis of appointment. As well as this, some people have specific responsibilities and will be of the most help - for example the convenor of the year of study you are in. In this section of the website, we have tried to put all that practical information and the most relevant contacts.
