Cross year enrolment checks
We’re now completing our annual checks to ensure students who are studying cross year (over the Christmas period) and do not have a vacation period in their VoS response, do not have a break longer than 3 weeks.
If you have students in this situation, we will be sending an email to your main VoS contact over the next couple of weeks to confirm these study details.
