We will continue to follow guidance from Public Health England and the Department of Education to stay up to date with, and act onnew information as it emerges. 

We are asking people to wear a face covering to protect everyone in our university community, and help minimise the potential for disruption to in-person teaching and learning. Please wear a face covering when moving around buildings and in crowded spaces. 

You will be required to wear a face covering where a risk assessment identifies this is essential for the safety of students and staff.

Free face coverings are available on campus at the main entry points to buildings

When you’re on campus, keep a safe distance from others and follow signage to protect everyone in our university community.

We encourage all students and staff to maintain good hand hygienewash their hands frequently and use the hand sanitisation stations available in buildings.

Cleaning kits are provided in social learning spaces across campus. This is in addition to our enhanced cleaning regime. The kit may contain one or more of the following items: Disinfectant spray, sanitising wipes, soft blue paper roll, hand sanitiser gel bottle 500ml. Please use this to clean any work areas before and after use.

Campus ambassadors will be present across our campuses to support students and staff and to navigate the return to campus for the first eight weeks of term.

If students have symptoms of coronavirus, they must follow government guidance for testing and tracing and self-isolation.

They should contact the university to make us aware if they are self-isolating. They will need to contact Student Advice via:

For students in university managed accommodation, arrangements will be made with the Accommodation Team to provide the necessary pastoral and practical support. 

Although it might not be possible for students to entirely separate themselves from family members or flatmates, the advice is to limit contact as much as possible. They should follow the NHS guidance around reducing the spread of infection in their household.

Studies in the 2021/22 academic year will predominantly be a mix of in-person, on-campus activities and classes, recorded video content and other online and digital materials. This is designed to maximise learning on a course-by-course level, as well as supporting more vulnerable learners. 

Lectures will be delivered either in-person and on campus, or delivered online, depending on your course. Where possible and suitable, online lectures will be recorded for continued use. 

If there is a return to mandatory social distancing and/or face covering measures, we will not deliver large-group in-person teaching on campus which will be delivered online instead.

We are returning to the application of standard regulations for progression, award, classification and mitigation for 2021/22. For more information read the factsheets on Section 4 of the academic regulations webpage or contact your course team. 

We will not be offering refunds or offering discounted tuition fees to all students as standard. The pandemic has resulted in changes to how courses are delivered. However, we continue to support all our students to achieve their desired outcomes and ensure no-one is academically disadvantaged by the current situation caused by Covid-19.
