Studying with us during coronavirus in 2022

Teaching and learning plans for 2022

How you'll learn when you start uni

We're back on campus for teaching and learning and we'll continue to teach in person unless there are changes to government guidance.

Your timetable will be built around teaching time on campus using our professional facilities. Then you'll have online sessions for some activities when being virtual adds value. We'll use technology to enhance all of your learning and give you personal support.

The importance of in person learning

Teaching through the pandemic has given us even more experience to give you a quality education with in person learning as a priority. If guidance changes, we'll continue to teach you on campus with more restrictions and more online learning.

Courses co-designed with students and staff

Our courses combine the best of our pre-pandemic teaching with online activities that students found more beneficial learning at home. Your learning is personal to you to help you fit uni around other commitments in your life.

Applying for January 2022 start

We plan to begin teaching our January start courses on campus from 17 January, as long as Government guidance allows.

We want everyone to join us then however if you can’t travel to the UK, or you have concerns about coming to campus, then you can still study here. We’ll support you to start online before you join us on campus. At the moment, we expect you to be on campus for learning by 14 February. If this changes at all, we will let applicants know directly.

What teaching and learning looks like

Live learning

  • Live, timetabled sessions that take place in-person on campus and online
  • Focused on building your community here and using our professional facilities
  • Interactive seminars, tutorials, lab sessions and demonstrations led by your academic
  • Collaborative group and project work led by you and other students

Learning in your own time

  • Online learning that puts you in charge of when you study
  • Activities that help you prepare for live learning and follow up afterwards
  • Curated resources from your academic like bitesize video lectures and podcasts
  • Independent study when you read, listen and reflect, including coursework assessments.

Postgraduate teaching

  • Teaching plans are optimised for your postgrad study needs and created in consultation with master's students from the past year
  • Timetabled on-campus sessions give you valuable contact time with academics and our postgrad community
  • Online sessions give you the flexibility to decide when and where you study around personal commitments.

Help to prepare for uni

We don't want you to worry about school catch-up or coming back to education after a break. We’ll get you ready to study at degree level with our Ready for Anything preparation activities happening online and in-person on campus.

Personal support during uni

We prioritise one to one support here like online personal tutoring with academics and support from students and graduates who have studied your course too. When you need it, our specialist teams provide academic skills and wellbeing support.

Technology that enhances your learning

We use tech to help you learn effectively and put you in control. You get online access to course materials and resources before, during and after sessions. We mix in some innovative new activities supported by tech too.

Employability skills and experiences

Our academics share their recent professional experience and knowledge of industry to develop your own skills. We have exclusive employability experiences, like our big careers festival, and our award-winning careers service is here to give you advice.
