Communicating with academic staff members
Your module tutors (Lecturers) and Campus Programme Coordinators (CPCs) will communicate with you via University email and you must check your University email regularly (see ‘Middlesex Email’). Changes to class schedules or specific information about your programme of study will be sent to you using your University email account and/or the Microsoft Teams platform. Hence, it is important that you read your university email and check your MS Teams notifications regularly.
You are welcome to reserve an appointment for a virtual consultation during your tutor’s office hours for timings that might suit you both. Please email your appointment request along with your inquiry from your university email account. Don’t forget to state your student ID number and module code and name in your email/online booking request. If you turn up at the door unannounced or phone at an unsuitable time, then you are far less likely to make contact.
Contact information for our academic and research staff members is provided at www.mdx.ac.ae/about-us/our-people/academic-and-research-staff
Bear in mind that your tutors have a number of teaching and research commitments so if you want to make an appointment suggest a list of times when you are available. The tutor can then email you back with an agreed time that suits you both.
You can also take advantage of the time in seminars, and after the end of the lectures, to ask any specific module-related questions.
