The coronavirus (COVID-19) situation continues to evolve. We're monitoring the situation on a daily basis and following the advice provided by Public Health England and the UK Government.
We continue to provide regular updates to our students.
We understand that this a difficult and challenging time, but we want you to know that we're taking all necessary steps to support our students as much as we can and for as long as needed.
We know that you and your family have been affected by the COVID-19 pandemic, and that many of you have questions and concerns. We want to reassure you that the wellbeing of our students is at the heart of everything we do, and we’ll continue to follow guidance from Public Health England (PHE).
We've worked hard to create safe and inclusive campuses and we're focusing on in-person active and inclusive learning and teaching. Our students will have seminars, practicals and workshops with peers and in our specialist labs and workspaces. And we've continued to structure the face-to-face timetable in teaching blocks as we know this helps our students plan their week. We've also made changes to our non-teaching spaces to provide flexible and safe places to meet between and after classes, catch up with friends, study or relax.
We're strongly encouraging students joining face to face teaching to take asymptomatic COVID-19 lateral flow tests. You'll find full details on our information page for students.
Our students are our absolute priority, and we will do everything we can to support them.
Students can contact the following teams for support, and follow our Student News blog for up-to-the-minute information.
