Train strikes

If you usually travel to campus by train, please be aware of planned train strikes. See Southeastern’s website for when these will take place as well as helpful information.

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

If you have an in-person exam 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 (see Credit Framework for details). However, if your circumstances mean that alternative arrangements to get to campus on a train strike day are not possible, please let your Division know you will be absent, 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 assessment.

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.
