Work placement, internships or practicums
- The unit coordinator aims to respond to questions within 2 working days. This includes questions related to assessments. Therefore, if you ask questions within 2 working days from the due date, you may not get a reply before the assignement is due. This also relates to technical problems that may arise when doing the quizzes.
- Questions of a general nature, not involving personal details, should be asked on the discussion forum. This is to ensure that everyone receives the same information. General questions asked via email may not receive a response.
