Lecture Lists

The Lecture List for Trinity Term 2019 is now available. Lectures held in the Examinations School are open to members of the University, but those held on Ruskin School of Art premises are closed except to Ruskin students and appointed students.  

Michaelmas Term 2019

Lectures begin on the first possible day after the beginning of Full Term unless otherwise stated.

Non-members of the University may not attend university lectures (unless they are announced as open to the general public) without payment of a fee, otherwise than by personal invitation of the lecturer concerned. Persons who are neither reading for a qualification of this University nor otherwise exempt, and who wish to attend lectures in any term, should apply to the Buildings and Events Manager, Examination Schools, for details of fees. At least three working days’ notice is required before a lecture permit can be issued, to allow liaison with the department or faculty concerned. Senior visiting scholars from other universities who wish to attend lectures, seminars, or classes should normally apply to the lecturer concerned directly, and not to the Buildings and Events Manager.
