Further Information

We can confirm that the academic year 2020/2021 will start on the dates that we have already published in the academic calendar. Course delivery will typically be in three 10-week blocks.

We are committed to ensuring you continue to have opportunities to access the learning and wellbeing support that you need over the forthcoming year.  General learning spaces, including access to libraries, will be available to be booked online; and where specialist space is needed, this will either be provided: as normal; created in newly adapted spaces; or replicated as part of an enhanced suite of online resources.

We recognise that many students are facing additional mental, wellbeing and financial challenges due to the disruption and uncertainty caused by the current pandemic. To ensure we’re able to offer the support that you need, we’re planning to increase our investment in this important area and continue to provide a full range of student support services. We want to provide a safe environment for students and staff, so on campus delivery of student support services will be limited. However full access to advice and professional support services will continue to be delivered online.
