Do admissions tutors work through the holiday season? Most of the unis are on holiday right now so does that mean that admissions tutors are as well?
yes, and ucas are having a holiday too... theres alot of posts about it!
Remember that there are also post graduates in universities who don't go to lectures. Just because undergrads have left for their holidays doesn't mean postgrads have, and neither do lecturers. As a result universities only really shut down the week immediately around Christmas and New Year, and even then since many people don't believe in Christmas, there'll be a fair few people still in uni that week too!
As such, there will be people working on admin right up till Christmas. My father is a university professor and has about 10 days holiday around Christmas and New Year and about 2 weeks in the summer. It doesn't work like teachers in schools who are there to teach and nothing else, lecturers have postgrads to supervise and research to do too.
