Both UNCC units need to be offered in different week patterns in normal semesters in order to accommodate cohorts of students whose courses require placements, clinicals and practica. This means that some students will attend classes over lecture weeks 1-10, while others may attend for a number of weeks, have a break from on-campus classes of three or four weeks and then return to campus and continue with their normal classes. As students are in mixed groups in the Core Curriculum, tutorials are generally not limited to students from a single course. It is vitally important, therefore, that each student chooses the stream that accommodates his or her practical placements when selecting tutorials in Tutorial Direct. Students should look carefully at their timetables, note the weeks of their other classes and choose a UNCC tutorial which corresponds to their weeks on campus.
