Newcastle University Business School – Census Days

This message applies only to Newcastle University Business School students!

This is an important reminder to all Singaporean/International Students studying in Newcastle University Business School.

If you are a NUBS student and required a student visa to study in the UK, you must present yourself at the Postgraduate Coffee Lounge of Armstrong Building (2nd floor) to sign the programme register and mark your attendance in the university.

You are required to do so anytime between 10am and 4pm on the following dates:

Monday 25 October 2010
Monday 22 November 2010
Monday 31 January 2011
Monday 21 February 2011
Monday 21 March 2011
Monday 09 May 2011

(Note that you need not sign the register during the holiday months of December and April)

This is a simple procedure similar to guys back in the Army “booking-in” to camp.

Please make sure you attend, as regularly missing the census days may cause your visa status to be affected, including the possibility of your student visa being revoked! Be careful!

If you cannot attend, or have questions, please look for Mr. James Wade via OWA Email or in the Business School Undergraduate office in Armstrong Building.
