Learning and teaching
An enormous amount of work is underway to make sure all students enjoy the positive and personal learning experience that our students expect.
The restrictions on numbers in rooms means that you will have a combination of live classes delivered online (for example, via Microsoft Teams), recorded lectures and face-to-face teaching. You will interact with academic tutors, and with each other, both through our virtual learning environment and face-to-face. You will also study on and off campus, as you would do in a normal year. We will provide as much face-to face teaching as we can within the constraints imposed by physical distancing. The proportion may vary depending on the nature of your programme. Programme teams will be in touch over coming weeks with more details.
Meetings with tutors and opportunities to collaborate in group learning activities with other students will be prioritised. Classes in specialist spaces including laboratories, studios and suites may take place on a rota basis so that we can maximise access to specialist space and equipment for relevant disciplines and guarantee high standards of cleanliness. Overseas trips that have been cancelled will be replaced with alternative content.
Your assessment will be set at the beginning of your modules and, in most cases, you’ll be able to complete it off campus and submit it online. We’ll continue to ensure that your assessment is meaningful and enables you to demonstrate your skills and knowledge in order to progress to graduation or to the next level of study as normal.
