About the appointment booking system

The BLS Academic Support site allows students to book appointments with staff online.  Students must login with their student username and password to use this service.   

There are three different types of appointment choose from:

  • Personal academic tuition appointments (15 mins)
  • Dissertation appointments (1 hour)
  • PhD supervision appointments (1 hour)

Staff availability & holidays

Staff can set their own availability, holidays and add additional (exceptional) days to their calendar via their profile page. All known public holidays and closed days will be added centrally.

Confirming appointments

To make sure that there is enough time to check your calendar and confirm the appointment, students are not able to book appointments that occur within the next 48hours.

Pending and confirmed appointment slots are automatically removed from the schedule to prevent double booking.
