Deadlines

(these are strict and cannot be changed due to various constraints)

Students will receive an acknowledgment of receipt by email. If no acknowledgment is sent it simply means the material has not been received or as been sent in the wrong format, so it is the student’s responsibility to chase the coordinator again (the day after).
