Student learning, teaching and assessment proposals for 2021/22

Home / Study / COVID-19 Student Learning

We are closely following the advice from the Department for Education and Public Health England and will keep all new students up to date with any impact Covid-related restrictions might have on your experience from February 2021.

Although it is impossible to predict the status of the pandemic in our next starting dates, the University aims to combine online lectures, seminars and workshops with timetabled teaching and other activities on campus.

This will include access to our libraries, studios and labs.

These plans may have to change inorder to adhere to Government requirements, but wherever possible there will be no changes to the overall aims of your course.

We understand that the approach to flexible learning and teaching will be new for many students.

As a new student, you’ll be able to access our Flying Start transition module before you start your studies and then your bespoke induction programme.

You'll discover all you need to know about how your course will be taught including both on-campus and online learning.

Our curriculum remains focused on the diverse needs of all our students as well as the expectations of professional bodies and graduate employers.

All of our teaching, learning and assessment is designed to support students to achieve their full potential.

We are committed to:

  • Helping students achieve excellent outcomes
  • Offering flexible and adaptive teaching
  • Personalised learning
  • Providing an inclusive and accessible environment

Over the past year, we've worked hard to balance the needs of students with the guidelines set out by the Government and public health experts.

We pride ourselves on the excellent support we offer to help our students settle into our vibrant student community.

This support has continued to be available online and we anticipate this will be available on campus too.

Learning resources

We will follow Government guidance but we aim to have our physical libraries open and accessible for students to study and use the resources for students to access the on-campus specialist resources, equipment and facilities.

Most of our recommended reading is available online.
