We are updating these webpages with information and guidance on a regular basis to reflect the latest government advice. Please use the pages below to access the information most relevant to you.

We urge our community to follow government restrictions in place to help control the spread of Covid-19.

The UK Government confirmed that further in-person teaching at English universities could resume from Monday 17 May 2021, as part of Step 3 of the Roadmap.

The UK Government has now announced that England will not proceed to Step 4 of the Roadmap out of Lockdown on Monday 21 June. Find out more on our student and staff latest news pages.

We (along with Durham County Council and Public Health England) are asking that all students take one PCR test each week, even if they have no symptoms, in addition to two LFTs.

We are ensuring that students receive a first-rate education and achieve their learning outcomes on time, and that students are not disadvantaged during the pandemic.
