In light of the global pandemic, we have reviewed all programmes and modules to ensure we can deliver a high-quality educational experience that is flexible, accessible and inclusive. During this review, our first priority has been the health and safety of our students and staff. The main change we have made is to move to a blended teaching model, combining face to face with online delivery. Our aim is to deliver as much face to face teaching as we safely can, maximising the use of space on campus and reviewing our timetable each term.
We’ll continue to review our plans on a termly basis and, if current social distance requirements are relaxed further, we will review the timetable to see if we can safely increase the amount of face to face teaching we can make available. If it is not feasible to increase face to face teaching, or guidelines are not relaxed, we will continue to offer a mixture of face to face and online teaching during the year. If guidelines are made more restrictive, or there is a further lockdown, we will move more content online as necessary.
In most cases, we have not had to make further significant changes to our programmes. However, we are providing more detail on any programme-level changes as follows:
When making changes in light of Covid-19, we have worked closely with our accrediting bodies, ensuring that our accredited programmes have maintained their accredited status.
In addition, the Undergraduate Module Handbook has been updated with programme regulations for each of our undergraduate degrees, and descriptions (including information on the content, teaching and assessment) for all current undergraduate modules. It will provide a useful reference point as you complete the enrolment process and register for your degree with us.
Further detailed information will subsequently be available on individual teaching activities in the timetable, which will be published in advance of the start of term.
