Coronavirus alert level

Update 5 January

On 4 January the Prime Minister announced that England would enter a national lockdown from 5 January to help stop the spread of Covid-19.

In line with Government guidance, the semester will start on 25 January with online teaching for the majority of students. Face-to-face teaching for most courses will not now commence until 14 February at the earliest. However, there are a number of previously announced exceptions to this and these specific courses will commence face-to-face learning as planned. Programme Teams will be in touch with students on these courses to confirm arrangements. Students on these courses should book and take two rapid Covid-19 tests, three days apart, upon arrival or self-isolate for ten days before commencing face-to-face study.

The Government has advised that all other students should remain where they are and start the semester online, studying from your current residence, where possible.
