Autumn term 2020-21

Autumn term has started on schedule and we are happy to see our new and returning students in person, where travel and visa arrangements have made it possible. Teaching is a combination of on-campus (in-person) and remote learning (online). This ‘multi-mode’ offering may be subject to change. We will do our best to provide increased on-campus teaching and research activities as we progress throughout the year.

To ensure each programme of study can be delivered safely, we have made some changes to our courses for 2020-21. Read about the changes to our undergraduate and postgraduate taught courses, and to MRes and PhD courses.

Find out more about multi-mode delivery, the learning experience and the steps we have taken to keep students safe on campus on our COVID-19 pages for current students and offer holders.
