We appreciate that the current Coronavirus (COVID-19) outbreak may leave people feeling anxious about student life, and the impact this will have on your studies, family, friends and community.
As a University, the wellbeing of our students and staff is always of utmost importance. We are monitoring the situation closely, following the latest UK Government advice and you can find updates on our webpage.
Our priority is to make sure that, for all of our students, your experience is enriching, exciting and above all, safe.
The University hopes to offer all Summer and Fall classes face-to-face (as well as remote for students who are unable to travel due to Covid restrictions) starting on 24 May 2021. This is, of course, is subject to change as the UK works through the easing of the National Lockdown.
Our timeline is dependent on the COVID-19 situation in the UK, government guidance and any precautionary measures the university’s senior management team deem necessary to take to protect our students and staff. The University’s Executive meets weekly to discuss plans for the term with the health and safety of the university community as their first priority and issues are discussed at the University Board and with the Board of Trustees. The Student Government is also consulted.
