When will programme delivery start?

Teaching for the 2020/21 academic year will begin on 5 October 2020.

 

How will teaching be delivered in 20/21?

We’re planning to deliver our programmes through a blend of in-person and online education, with the emphasis on face-to-face teaching; our expectation is that you will be available to take part in campus-based activity to the full extent that is possible.

Special Considerations

Please Note: The University will take account of the general impact the current situation will be having on students’ performance in assessment.

If the Covid-19 pandemic has had a disproportionate impact on you because of your own personal circumstances you should use the Covid-19 Extension Request for Assessment Form or Covid-19 Special Considerations Request Form
