Current University Position

Please note: following the government announcement on Monday 22 February 2021, all classes and student services will continue to be delivered online only.

The situation will be reviewed by the end of the Easter holidays.


In line with current government guidance, all teaching and student support services will now be delivered online and you can find information on when these will be held by accessing your timetable.

Sessions will be also recorded so that you can revisit them later.
