(This page is mostly for students on single or dual honours mathematics degrees. There is a separate page for engineering students.)

Hicks Student Support

Support for students of the School of Mathematics and Statistics (and the Department of Physics and Astronomy) is provided via Hicks Student Support in room G12. The office is open 09.30-16.30, Monday to Friday. You can contact us You should contact Hicks Student Support if you have any teaching related questions. It is also where you should submit various kinds of forms (to record illness or other special circumstances, for example). All forms can be obtained from the following page:

Student forms

Some forms can be completed and/or submitted online. In particular, you should use the online system to change your module registrations, unless you want to request a change after the standard deadline. See the page above for detailed instructions.

Some other forms need to be printed, filled in by hand and submitted to G12. For the most common forms (Special Circumstances and Change of Status) you can also collect a blank copy from G12 instead of printing it yourself. Some forms need to be signed by an appropriate staff member before they can be submitted. See the following page for details:

Who signs forms


You can provide anonymous feedback on anything that concerns or delights you using this link:

Alternatively, you can talk to one of the members of the Staff student forum.

Submission of coursework

For some modules, you may be asked to submit course work using the dropbox outside G12. All such course work must have the relevant cover sheet attached. You can obtain a cover sheet for a specific assignment from the following link (you will need to use your MUSE login details):

Assignment Cover Sheets

Print out the cover sheet and attach it to the front of your work. Cover sheets are available a week before the submission date and work can be submitted at any time (provided that the building is open to students) via the drop box outside G12. Please note that cover sheets are specific to a given item of course work and student. If you get a friend to print out a cover sheet your marks may not be credited to you.

If you have any problems accessing a coversheet, please email or drop into G12.

Work submitted via the dropbox can be collected from G12 after it has been marked.

Note that course work for some modules is collected and returned in tutorials or lectures; none of the above is relevant in that case.
