Travel disruption in Dec and Jan 

There are some disruptions to Southeastern trains planned for December 2022 and January 2023 which may affect your travel to/from our Canterbury and Medway campuses. 

Strike action is due to take place on the following dates:  

  • December – Tuesday 13/Wednesday 14 and Friday 16/Saturday 17  
  • January – Tuesday 3/Wednesday 4 and Friday 6/Saturday 7  

If you usually travel to campus by train, we recommend you find alternative modes of travel where possible on train strike days and check our Campus Travel updates webpage.  

If you have an in person In Course Test (ICT) on a train strike day, please make every effort to make alternative travel arrangements as these cannot be rescheduled. 

Travel disruption in itself is not a reason for mitigation. However, if your circumstances mean that alternative arrangements to get to campus on a train strike day are not possible, please follow your Division’s process for applying for an authorised absence, or contact your Student Support Team. You will also need to apply for an end of year mitigation if your absence results in you missing an ICT.

If you miss teaching due to train strikes, please check your Moodle module page for any resources made available or alternatively arrange to see your seminar/class leader during office/student consultation hours or speak to your academic adviser.

Teaching will continue as planned, and our campuses and services will remain open during the disruption. We will continue to communicate with you about any changes.
