CIC- Squared

Our second CIC-squared of the year will be held at CIC HQ on Friday 22 April. Our last one was a huge success, and we’re looking forward to have even more attend and hopefully better weather! Keep an eye on your email and the Google Calendar for more details to follow.

If you know of anyone interested in attending, especially if they work in data analytics or similar, let know because we’d love to invite them along.

Census Date

The census date is Monday 11 April, which means this is the final day to withdraw from subjects. If you don’t, you’ll be charged the subject fee, and it will go down as a fail on your academic record. Withdrawing from subjects is done through MyStudentAdmin. Any issues, email
