Applying to Oxford Brookes

The academic year 2021/22

Courses in the academic year 2021/22

All of our September-start courses are running with adaptations to fit the current situation. We have opened all our campuses as fully as possible with measures in place to ensure the health and safety of our students and staff.

What is life on campus like?

Our campuses and facilities will be fully open from September. You will be able to use facilities such as our cafes and join social activities with Brookes Union clubs and societies.

The health and safety of our students, staff and community will always be our priority. To protect you and keep you safe, we will be keeping some specific health and safety measures in place across our campuses. For example, we will still be asking all staff and students to continue wearing face coverings, unless there is a medical exemption. We will also be maintaining enhanced cleaning measures, signposted circulation routes on campus and will be asking people to maintain space from each other, where possible.

Whilst we’re looking forward to resuming in-person teaching, some elements of some courses may be delivered online - for example, we are planning for some of our bigger lectures to take place online. This will also allow you to access those lectures at a place and time that suits you best - something that many students have welcomed this year.

Visit our New student webpages, which will be regularly updated with a range of content to help you prepare for your arrival. In particular, after such a challenging year, we have put into place our Head into Brookes programme to help you transition into your course and life at Oxford Brookes more generally.
