General arrangements for supervisions
will take place in the Computer Laboratory. Please go to reception and use the
phone on the desk outside to ring me in SN17 (on 63671) before coming up
to the north side of the second floor, so I can let you in to the DTG
will arrange supervisions as far in advance as possible, but always by the

hours before the supervision it is due for, if you would like me to see if
it could be any better!
hand in work either by emailing me a pdf link or
putting in my pigeon hole in the Computer Lab
(this can be done by asking at reception). Please mark it for my
attention. Work can be hand
written or typed. Bear in mind
you will have to write all your exams by hand.
you have any technical questions in-between supervisions,
please email me. I will answer

these arrangements or any part of the supervisions, please don’t hesitate
to approach me in confidence.
