Learning and teaching from September

We want to provide you with reassurance around how we are planning to deliver outstanding learning and teaching experiences from the start of the new academic year in September 2020.

However, we acknowledge that these are unprecedented times and there remains much uncertainty in what the future holds.

While none of us know how the global health emergency will evolve over the summer, we can assure you we have a robust learning and teaching strategy in place to provide you with all the support you need to achieve the study success you deserve.


From September we will welcome new and returning students and we hope that this will be face to face teaching. However, we may use a mixture of face-to-face campus-based and online teaching, with provision adjusted to meet with the latest Government advice.

Your safety and success are our absolute priorities. We will follow all government advice for your wellbeing, and deliver outstanding learning experiences to help you achieve the career you deserve.

We already utilise a number of online learning experiences, including 24-7 access to iSite, where you’ll find a wealth of resources from your teaching staff as well as links to electronic textbooks, journals and videos. We will, if necessary, offer some lessons through software such as Microsoft Teams, which provides an active, engaging and inspiring study experience combining live lectures and lots of opportunities to discuss and interact with tutors and fellow students.


While we provide all the assistance you need to get the most from online learning, we want to make sure you have all the support you need to help you study. You will be provided with a dedicated tutor to help navigate your programme. You will have access to a range of specialist support services including disability, financial and careers support.


We are continually monitoring government advice so that we can make the best decisions to keep you safe whilst delivering the best possible education programme. This means that our plans may change. Our website is regularly updated with information to help with your application and studies.
