Teaching and learning

We’re making every effort to keep our students safe and give them the best possible experience and education.

As a student here, you will benefit from a consistently high-quality learning experience, which includes the use of dedicated technology to help you fulfil your potential.

Approach to learning

How you will learn with us will depends on a few factors. At the moment, we're basing the frequency of in-person teaching on:

  • your programme of study
  • Welsh government rules on social distancing
  • requirements of professional, statutory or regulatory governing bodies.

If you joined us now, this is what your teaching experience would be like.

You might also want to read our information for prospective undergraduate students during the coronavirus (COVID-19) pandemic.

The changing nature of the pandemic means it can be hard to predict future plans with certainty. Whatever the situation, we are committed to providing you with the best teaching and learning experiences.

Teaching in smaller groups

Where social distancing requirements can be met, our on-campus learning will consist of in-person teaching in smaller groups. This will include tutorials or clinical, studio and laboratory sessions (if that's part of your course). At the moment, you won't be attending large lectures on campus.

Not only that, all students will benefit from a range of online technologies and approaches that provide information, facilitate collaboration and support independent learning.

Even with online tutorials, lecturers have been extremely supportive, taking their time to create resources for using complicated software in engineering and explaining everything step by step. Most of them have been really engaging, always asking for our feedback and ways of improvement – it’s great to see that, while we are all going through really tough times, lecturers are really trying their best to still give us that great university experience.

We've also created guides to help you get fully prepared for your teaching and to address any concerns you may have about what your lessons will look like.

And to ensure a positive digital learning experience for everyone, we are working in partnership with students to continually evaluate and improve our digital tools, resources and teaching approaches.
