School of Health and Community Studies: Teaching 2020-21


This page was last updated: 24/06/20, 10:30.

You will experience a blended approach to learning – this is a mix of face-to-face, on campus and remote teaching and learning. The learning content you will receive will be as planned for the academic year 2020/2021 before the Covid-19 outbreak.

We are working within government social distancing measures so we are not planning to deliver large-group teaching on campus throughout 2020/2021. This will ensure that maximum space will be available for small-group teaching.

In most cases, the taught content will also be available online so you can still access it if you can’t attend campus due to the pandemic (for example, due to self-isolation, shielding or travel restrictions).

We will prioritise face-to-face teaching and practical teaching to meet any requirements of relevant professional, statutory and regulatory bodies (PSRB) if your course includes these elements. This will ensure that your course retains its full professional status.

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.

Further Information

Plus Icon Will term begin on the date originally planned?
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.
Plus Icon What learning support will be available?
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.
Plus Icon Will I still be able to access wellbeing support?
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.
