Our COVID-19 secure teaching and learning experience
Coming to campus
Since September 2021, we have returned to as much face-to-face teaching on campus as possible, subject to government restrictions and guidance.
In line with government advice, everyone attending campus is strongly urged to access symptom-free testing, known as Lateral Flow Testing (LFT), before accessing any work or study space as follows:
- Regular attendance: two tests per week, at least three days apart and 30 minutes before entering any buildings on campus
- Occasional attendance: one test, at least 30 minutes before entering any buildings on campus
You can take a Lateral Flow Test using a home testing kit (these can be picked up at locations across our campuses) or at a community testing facility. Read more in our guide to accessing regular symptom-free testing.
On Saturday 27 November 2021, the Prime Minister announced new temporary measures following the emergence of the Omicron variant of COVID-19 in the UK. This includes a statement that face coverings should be worn when moving around in communal areas indoors on campus by students, staff, and visitors, unless they are exempt.
For new and continuing students, timetables are available via the timetable app on the Student Portal (login required). Only your on-campus and ‘real-time’ online sessions will appear in your timetable. All other sessions/materials will not appear in your timetable and will be accessible via Aula as directed by your Course Director.
If you are having an issue with your timetable, including missing or incorrect information, please speak to the Student Engagement Centre for support to resolve the problem.
