Your course tutors have been working to further enhance your online teaching. They are finding imaginative ways to deliver lectures, workshops, and seminars online.

We are all working together to bring all students back on campus as Government guidance allows, however capacity on our sites is currently limited.

On-site learning

It is our firm intention that we will be returning to campus with our facilities and resources open as normal in September 2021.  

Your learning experience on campus will include practical teaching, seminars, and workshops, with full access to our resources and study spaces as well as some online learning alongside your on-campus teaching.  

Your timetables for our planned normal return will be available in early August. This date will only change should government guidance force us to change our delivery plans. We are very excited to be welcoming you on campus in September.   

What do I do if I cannot attend a specific on-site session?

Please let your module leader know and access your attendance record via our Student Engagement and Attendance system (SEA) and add an absence note for your class.

Online learning

Bringing some of the learnings and benefits of online learning gained in the last year your on-campus learning experience will now be accompanied with opportunities to engage and learn online. This will vary in delivery from course-to-course.

Changes to courses

There may be changes to your course in response to the ongoing coronavirus pandemic. You can find an updated overview of the changes on the pages below.

Work placements

I’m due to take a work placement as part of my course. Can this go ahead?

In accordance with Government guidance during lockdown, you should, if possible, complete your work placement by working from home. However, if the only way to complete your placement is by going onto employer premises, this could be possible providing some additional health and safety criteria are met. This will include making sure the workplace meets all the Government’s standards for premises to reopen and that they have carried out risk assessments.

If at any time you feel unable to carry on with a work placement outside of your home, please speak to your Module Leader or Work Placement Team who can discuss alternatives with you. If you are an international student on a Tier 4 visa, make sure to speak to the Student Advice team about your work placement plans.

Please also note the Government guidance for people more at risk from Coronavirus and the specific guidance for those who are shielding.

University-related travel

All colleague and student travel in and outside the UK for University-related reasons is suspended until further notice.
