Coronavirus (COVID-19) advice and updates


We are delighted to welcome our students back to campus.

Teaching and exams will remain online for the rest of this term (excluding medicine), but our libraries, learning spaces and cafes are open for students to enjoy. Next term will be a hybrid model, with some teaching online and some in person, with the aim that teaching and learning will return to normal from September.

If you plan on using our study spaces it is compulsory that you take tests twice a week, 3-5 days apart, and receive negative results. These can be done through the on-campus Lateral Flow Tests or the government’s home test kits, which can be ordered free online.

Please remember that, even if you have received negative results, you still need to abide by government guidelines and social distancing measures.

We are supporting any students who can’t join us on campus due to COVID-19 related reasons with high-quality online learning. We’ve received great feedback from our students who are currently being taught in this way and you will be provided with the support you need to progress with your studies and smoothly join us on campus at the earliest opportunity.

These pages offer information and resources for University students and applicants on Covid-19, answers to frequently asked questions, and details on how the university is responding during this difficult time. Staff should please check the Sharepoint site for relevant updates.
