The start of a new semester always presents exciting possibilities. There are new courses to teach, new learners to meet and new opportunities to make learning an enriching experience for all involved.

One thing that tutors need to remember is the importance of deadlines. In order to keep our ship sailing smoothly, we need the cooperation of all tutors to keep to the timeframe stipulated by the Centre for Tutor Management and Development. So, please have a look at the tables below for this semester's Online Marks Entry System (OMES) deadlines and dates of activities.

For further details, please call the Centre for Tutor Management and Development at 03-26168842/8846.
