Our 20/21 academic year: COVID Information

Our education delivery has temporarily moved online. For the great majority of students, teaching will be online until at least 12 April 2021, with the exception of Medicine, Health Sciences and PGCE students.

The latest government guidance has allowed us to introduce some in-campus in-person teaching for some students on practical and practice-based courses from 8 March 2021. Schools have been in touch directly with students who are eligible.

The current restrictions allow travel for purposes of work, where working from home is not possible. However, only essential staff, including those teaching the priority face to face courses listed above, will be allowed access to our campuses.

Those students and staff who are coming to campus should participate in the Saliva Testing Programme and follow the COVID-secure behaviours set out in our Code of Conduct. Students should not move between their permanent home and university home during term-time.

We will continue to support both staff and students through this period. We remain committed to delivering high-quality education and student support online.

We continue to monitor the situation as it develops, taking into consideration both public health and Government advice and policy, and will keep this webpage updated.
