What support is the University providing for students in self-isolation?
Please see the Test and trace, reporting and self-isolation webpage for more information.
What support is available from Student Support Coordinators?
During this unprecedented time, the University is aware that there are a lot of changes happening very quickly and this can feel overwhelming and cause worry and anxiety.
Student Support Coordinators (SSCs) are still working hard to support students with the many new processes being put in place. SSCs are also still able to help with your everyday questions and support needs as usual - further information on the support they provide can be found here.
What library resources are available?
The library webpages provide information on services available and opening hours. Library Help - our support chat service - can provide a valuable signposting service as well as direct help and support.
Please don’t forget that our Academic Liaison Librarians can also be considered a key resource available to you during this time and can be contacted here.
What will happen if you need to close the University?
If we need to close the University, you will be informed immediately to your Brookes email account. Halls of Residence will contact students directly with any local arrangements. We will advise students of what services remain open, and how to contact them.
I’m due to go on a field class which counts as an assessment. What will happen about that?
If assessed events are disrupted by the current situation, teaching colleagues will make arrangements for the assessments to take place in a different way. You will be contacted by Module Leaders with more details.
I’m on placement in a workplace affected by coronavirus. What do I do?
You should follow your employer’s instructions in relation to any action taken by your workplace in relation to coronavirus. If this disrupts your study, then the Exceptional Circumstances process will apply. Further guidance is also available for students studying for programmes in the faculties of Technology, Design and Environment and Humanities and Social Sciences and Oxford Brookes Business School.
In the event of a student requiring evidence of their degree in order to progress to postgraduate studies but has not received it in time, what other options are available?
Student Central will produce electronic transcripts for students who can’t graduate. It is not currently possible to produce hard copies.
