All university buildings (with the exception of residential halls) are now closed and all campus-based events such as Open Days, Applicant days and Campus tours cancelled until further notice.
Our taught programmes have switched from face-to-face teaching to remote learning and we will be using online assessments rather than in-person exams.
All non-essential international and UK travel, field trips and placements have been cancelled.
Any of our international/EU students who choose to travel home, and are able to do so, are being supported to continue with their studies. Please see our advice for international and European students.
All current students will be able to progress or graduate, subject to achieving the required academic standard, and the impact of COVID-19 taken into account in the award of grades and degree classifications.
All students should continue to work to their existing timetable and monitor studentcentral regularly for updates on the delivery of their modules and to access learning materials and resources.
We have also brought together a range of resources to help our students to prepare for and get the best out of remote learning as well as signposting to student support and wellbeing services.
Any student with any questions or concerns about COVID-19, can call our dedicated helpline on 01273 641234 (Monday – Friday 10am to 12 noon, 1pm to 3pm).
We recommend that our students register with local health services and that, in line with current PHE guidance, should they feel unwell with flu-like symptoms linked to COVID-19 (respiratory symptoms such as a dry cough, fever or breathing difficulties) they should stay at home for 14 days and avoid contact with others.
