Academic year 2020-21

Updated 7 August 2020

Your programme will begin on schedule and our campuses are open for students and researchers. We are looking forward to seeing you in person, if travel and visa arrangements allow. If you can’t travel to campus, we want to reassure you that we have made plans which make it possible to offer  you  a  high-quality remote educational experience during the Autumn. 

Your education 

If you are an Undergraduate, Postgraduate Taught or Postgraduate Research student your  teaching, research, and training will be  a  combination of on-campus (in-person)  and remote (online). We call this ‘multi-mode’ delivery.    

This means:   

  • We will combine on-campus teaching, research, and training, with the benefits of their remote counterparts. At all times we will ensure we meet social distancing guidelines. 

  • We look forward to welcoming students to campus for the start of Autumn term. Of course, we fully appreciate that everyone’s circumstances are different and that this may not be possible for you. Therefore, if you are unable to travel to campus for the beginning of your programme, for the majority of programmes we have made plans so that you will not be disadvantaged in your learning experience over the course of your programme. 

  • Some learning, research, training and assessment activities will be very difficult to replace with a remote equivalent. In these cases, they will be moved with minimal disruption to a later date in your programme. 

Whatever category of student you are it is important to recognise that, depending on official government guidance throughout the entirety of next academic year, the balance in the ‘multi-mode’ offering may be subject to change. We hope to be able to offer you increased on-campus activities throughout the year.
