We are updating this page regularly and as quickly as we can when new guidance is announced. Please keep yourself up-to-date with the latest information available on the NHS website and ensure you know what is expected of you in terms of staying alert and safe.
What will the teaching and learning look like in September 2021?
Now that Government restrictions have been relaxed, we are going to deliver a fully in-person teaching timetable from September which means all of your lectures, seminars and tutorials will be face-to-face, supported by high quality online materials which will be available on demand.
You will also have access to all of the University’s learning and social facilities, so you can enjoy all of the resources you will need to thrive at University.
In all of our planning, we are guided by the advice from Public Health England and will follow any restrictions the Government places on the wider population. Our primary objective is to ensure we provide you with a safe, secure and fully open campus when term starts.
You can access all of the information you need about getting started at the University on your applicant webpages.
You can also read more about how we’ve supported our students this year by visiting our news stories or by taking a look at our social media channels to see how we’ve created a vibrant campus this summer with a free outdoor cinema, sports activities and student barbeques.
Can I visit the campus before September?
We realise how important it is for you to visit us in person, and we now have a number of opportunities for you to visit the campus:
Open Day – our next Open Day is taking place on Saturday 14 August. The Open Day will give you the opportunity to meet your department, take a look at the facilities, and chat to current students. You can find out more and book your place here.
Campus Tours – we have a number of student-led, covid-secure campus tours, available to book now
