Last updated: 01/04/2021 15:27
We’re working hard to ensure your time with us is safe and enjoyable during these unprecedented times.
Those students yet to resume in-person teaching can expect a return to blended learning from 12 April (our Spring semester resumes on Monday 19 April). Please read a message sent to students from Claire Morgan, Pro Vice-Chancellor for Education and Students. This does not affect the return of postgraduate research students.
Our campus, including our residences, libraries, study spaces and other buildings, remains open and safe should you wish to return to Cardiff. You can still access education and support services. We also have a range of additional safety measures in place that have been approved by Public Health Wales.
Postgraduate research students (PGR)
Postgraduate research students can access information about continuing you research, supervision, teaching, access to campus, funding, your viva and submitting your thesis by logging into the student intranet.
International and exchange students
International and exchange students can access information about visas and immigration, bringing family with you to the UK, guidance for EU, EEA, and Swiss nationals, advice about working in the UK and leaving the UK if this is your final year by logging onto the student intranet.

Learning, teaching and assessment
The approach to learning will depend on your course. The frequency of in-person teaching will depend on:
