Ramadan Mubarak to all our staff and students who will be celebrating Ramadan.
This year, Ramadan overlaps with the exam period and we would like to remind students of the importance of looking after yourself and consider the impact that fasting may have upon your preparation for and sitting of exams.
Things to consider include:
- Planning schedules and meals and ensuring you are able to access food at sundown for breaking the fast
- Getting the required nutrients via a healthy, balanced evening meal along with hydration and rest
- Staying indoors or in the shade and limit physical activity, resting if possible.
The university will make reasonable efforts to accommodate religious observance by students. Where religious observance causes difficulties in submitting or sitting an assessment it may be possible to accommodate this under the BU Exceptional Circumstances policy.
BU’s Religion and Belief policy can be found in the Conduct & Welfare section of the Important Information page.
