Welcome to the School of Creative Arts.
Your CATS Tutor, Rebecca Thomas (firstname.lastname@example.org), is the key person who can help you with subject-specific issues: timetables, workshops and general support. The three letters on your module code that are looked after by the School of Creative Arts these are CTA and MMF. Your modules can be found on Studynet.
What enquiries does the School of Humanities deal with for CATS students?
You firstly need to see your CATS tutor to authorise a module change or timetable change. The tutor then sends it to CATS’ administration to amend on the system, which will then prompt a timetable change in the School of Creative Arts. Everything is then amended by the administration team within the School of Humanities.
What enquiries do the School of Creative Arts deal with?
Mostly timetable and module choice queries where we then direct students to Rebecca Thomas (CATS tutor in CTA) and Paula Dickinson for timetable allocation. For enquiries about the Module Board and the releasing of results and related decisions please contact the Creative Arts School Office.
How does a student change modules due to a timetable clash or for other reasons?
Please direct your queries to Rebecca Thomas. She will sign the learning agreements and send them back to Catsadmin@herts.ac.uk so their records can be amended.
Students can study a minimum of 45 credits and a maximum of 60 (some study 75 but with authorisation from their home institution, Judy St John is the Programme Manager for this). The tutor doesn’t need to check with the student’s home Institution if there is a change. It is, however, the student’s responsibility to check if, for example, their credits have gone down from 60 to 45.
To change modules, students much complete a Module Change Form, which is available from Rebecca Thomas or from the School of Humanities Administration Office. Students can only request a change if there is a timetable clash. The deadline for requesting a change is two weeks.
