Extra Information: 

UWE uses a week numbering system with the zero datum (reference point for week 1/0) set at some time in August, but teaching modules often use their own numbering systems that start when the module starts teaching activities. There is great conflict and confusion between whether a numbered week is a "UWE week" or a "module week". This creates great confusion over things for which timing is particularly important like assignment deadlines and timetabled activities.
