- Throughout Welcome Week the timetable is being edited
- You have not completed your online enrolment
- University record system has not transferred your information.
Teaching will be a mixture of online and face to face. Lectures will be delivered online and recorded so they are available for students who are outside the UK or who are quarantining. Seminars will take place face to face on campus. You need to be prepared to travel to campus at least 3 times per week.
