Last updated: 07/06/2021 15:56

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.

Current students can access information about coronavirus (COVID-19) including the latest restrictions affecting Cardiff and Wales by logging in to the student intranet.

Find out what to do if you're a student who needs to self-isolate, what support is available and what services you can access.

There is also information on topics such as changes to work, study or volunteer placements, library services and student support and wellbeing.

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.

Learning, teaching and assessment

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

  • your programme of study
  • Welsh Government rules on social distancing
  • where relevant, the requirements of professional, statutory or regulatory governing bodies.

We've developed a remote study policy for students who may not be able to join us.

Our safety net policy for 2020/21 outlines how we will ensure students are not disadvantaged in terms of their achievement as a result of the coronavirus (COVID-19) pandemic.
