If you're studying on a Music or Audio course at ARU in September, here's how you can prepare for online learning and using on-campus facilities.
Modules with a large practical aspect will be streamed online by a lecturer presenting or demonstrating, and a lecturer monitoring Microsoft Teams to respond to student interactions and any queries you may have.
These sessions will also be recorded and made available on Canvas to re-watch at a later date.
Some computer-based modules may be delivered only online, so if you have opted for on-campus delivery you will be able to use on-campus facilities to view the streamed lecture/presentation.
Yes, facilities and equipment will be available on a pre-booked basis, though as you’d expect, some restrictions will apply based on limitations related to COVID-19.
You do not need specialist equipment or software. However, all students will need to have access to a PC, laptop or iPad with Microsoft Teams installed in order to join online sessions. Please see our technical requirements for online learning page for more details, particularly the 'additional technical specifications – creative courses' section.
If you are a vocalist, we also recommend that you purchase a microphone for home usage, ideally a large-diaphragm condenser. See Gear4Music for basic packages/bundles.
