Dear All,

Please find attached a document laying out some changes to Academic practice within the Foundation for 2016-17. It is especially aimed at continuing students, though new students may also find it useful, as it updates you on policy decisions made by Academic Management Group (AMG) for 2016-17 which impact all students.

- Extensions, mitigations and ILPs

- Module feedback processes
