Notice about the Covid-19 infection
  • Covid-19


We are looking forward to welcoming our students back to campus in September, where they can expect a world-class education and student experience that prioritises their health, safety and wellbeing as well that of our staff and wider communities.

We continue to follow government guidelines for social distancing. Our first term will therefore involve innovative and flexible ways of teaching and learning where face-to-face lectures and student services such as support and wellbeing are combined with quality online delivery.

The wider student experience (enrichment and support activity) from student welfare and counselling, to the arts and culture, sport and volunteering will also follow a blended approach. It will take place in person where it is considered to be safe and in line with national guidelines, with the remainder activities delivered online where possible.
