• Business School eXfactor FAQs

1. I have a lecture/ workshop from another discipline to attend on that date. What should I do?

You should have been allocated an eXfactor session on a date when you don’t have any other timetabled classes. If you find you do have clashes in your timetable, please let us know via My Career Zone and we can look at an alternative session for you to attend.

2. I couldn’t attend my timetabled day. What should I do?

If you are unable to attend your timetabled session, please let us know via My Career Zone and a member of the eXfactor team will assign you to an alternative session. 

3. I have a disability that restricts my access to some rooms / buildings or I need to have a support worker with me. Do I need to let anyone know?

Yes please. Some of the rooms eXfactor is held in are difficult to access so it is useful for the Career Zone team to know your requirements so adjustments can be made in advance. Also, any increase in planned numbers needs to be known about in advance in terms of having a support worker with you. Please contact the Career Zone if you have any questions or to notify of any adjustments that need making.
