Teaching and learning during COVID-19

Find out how teaching and learning will be delivered, how changes to course delivery will be communicated, what happens if you can't or don't want to come to campus, and how research activities are taking place.

Teaching and learning: classes, lectures and tutorials

Our campuses remain open, with required public health measures in place.

Normal teaching and learning on campus

  1. All courses for all students will be offered in the mode in which they were originally intended and planned, including all aspects that have normally been delivered on-campus.
  2. All student-facing campus-based services continue to be fully operational.

Changes to delivery of courses: keep up to date

Delivery arrangements for each course, including any changes that are necessary, for example due to staff illness or isolation requirements, will be communicated to students via Canvas and your timetable.

Students who can't or don’t want to return to campus

Students who can't return, or choose not to be on campus can take advantage of the digital resources available as part of our usual blended teaching and learning arrangements. Visit Canvas to discover what digital resources you can access remotely.

Canvas information

Unfortunately, we can't guarantee alternatives to learning opportunities, because of a student's choice not to attend the campus.

If lockdowns or any other restrictions are imposed by government the University will use its reasonable endeavours to comply with teaching and learning designed for a student’s programme of study.  The University at its sole discretion may undertake certain actions, including online delivery of teaching and learning or deferment to meet the requirements of a student's programme of study as a result of government public health orders.

Academic progression and applying for special consideration for an assessment
