Current advice as of 05 April 2020
The University Executive Board is meeting daily to oversee and monitor the situation and is being supported by an Incident Response Team. We are continuing to liaise closely with Public Health England (PHE) and to follow Government guidance.
The university will be switching to online assessments rather than holding exams.
Unfortunately, we will be unable to hold our summer ceremonies as planned but we are looking at alternative options.
It may be some time before final decisions can be made.
The university remains open for applications for 2020 entry and will be following guidance from UCAS and examining bodies in how to take account of the cancellation of this summer’s A-level and other exams.
Any international/EU student who chooses to return home for an extended period will be supported in continuing their studies. They should complete this online form so that we can keep in touch.
We continue to offer support to EU/International students who may not be able to travel home, including those who live in halls and private accommodation.
Please see our advice for international and European students.
Public Health England provide an up to date guide on self-isolation. This gives useful advice on both whether you should self-isolate and how to safely self-isolate to reduce the risk of infection being spread.
If you have recently returned from an area identified by FCO, you are advised to check the FCO guidance as to whether you should self-isolate.
Any students still living in halls who need to self-isolate should inform the hall’s duty manager.
