Coronavirus (COVID-19) information for current students
Last updated: 13/10/2020 10:42
We’re working hard to ensure your time with us is safe and enjoyable during these unprecedented times.
Although local restrictions are currently in place, in person teaching continues. Our study spaces, sports facilities and catering facilities remain open and we have a range of additional safety measures in place that have been approved by Public Health Wales.
Current students can access the latest information about coronavirus (COVID-19) by logging in to the student intranet.
Learning, teaching and assessment
All courses will feature some in person teaching. However, the frequency will depend on:
- your programme of study
- Welsh Government rules on social distancing
- where relevant, the requirements of professional, statutory or regulatory governing bodies.
Large lectures will not take place on campus. Where social distancing requirements can be met, on-campus learning will consist of in person teaching in smaller groups. It will include tutorials or clinical, studio and laboratory sessions where relevant.
These smaller sessions will benefit from additional safety measures, alongside high-quality online teaching, learning activities and resources.
We've developed a remote study policy for students who may not be able to join us in the first semester.
Our safety net policy for 2019/20 outlines how we will ensure students are not disadvantaged in terms of their achievement as a result of the coronavirus (COVID-19) pandemic.
