* The University may deliver certain contact hours and assessments via emerging online technologies and methods. In response to the Covid-19 pandemic, we are prepared for Summer Schools due to start in or after the 2020/2021 academic year to be delivered in a variety of forms. The form of delivery will be determined in accordance with Government and Public Health guidance. Whether on campus or online, our key priority is staff and student safety.

Due to the ongoing restrictions relating to Covid-19, some facilities (including some teaching and learning spaces) and some non-academic offerings (particularly in relation to international experiences), may vary from those advertised and may have reduced availability or restrictions on their use.

** Please note: The offer only applies to face-to-face modules. Online modules are not eligible for the discount. If Summer Schools are moved fully online due to COVID-19 restrictions, students will be offered the chance to take the school online for a reduced price and be refunded the difference or will be offered a full refund. Please note in this instance, the discount no longer applies. Students that originally opted for the online options will not be offered refunds unless the summer school is completely cancelled.
