Joining us in September 2022

As we adapt to living with COVID-19, we look forward to teaching our students on campus, where you'll have full use of our services and facilities such as libraries, sports, and the Students' Union. Our blended activities, developed as a result of the pandemic, will become part of your learning experience, providing you with the best of hybrid teaching.

With Wales now at alert level 0, our shops, restaurants, cafés, gyms and nightlife are open for you to enjoy. Find out more about student life in Cardiff.

Your teaching and learning experience

Our non-clinical teaching spaces are open to all students this semester. We look forward to delivering a campus-based experience without COVID-19 restrictions in September 2022. Our in-person teaching will include lectures, tutorials, seminars, lab work and workshops.

We remain committed to providing blended, flexible learning. Our blended learning guide is available to all students as we continue to use innovative approaches that enable them to fully engage in their studies. 

Blended learning has introduced a huge amount of flexibility and has led to significant advances in delivering accessible content, inclusive student engagement and the use of online resources and activities that students have welcomed.  

We continue to follow Welsh Government guidance, and how this affects our teaching and research is kept under constant review.

Keeping you safe

We've introduced a number of safety measures to help minimise the risk of COVID-19 in our community which are kept under review and subject to change depending on Welsh Government guidance. These have included:

Social distance

Social distancing

Encouraging social distancing where possible and appropriate

Supporting you

We have a dedicated Student Life team to help you make the most of your university experience, regardless of the changes the pandemic may still bring.

We’ve recruited more frontline counselling and wellbeing staff to help you as we get used to different ways of working, teaching and learning. We’ve also appointed some of our current students as Residence Life Assistants to support you when you're in University accommodation.

Our community commitment

We’re asking students and staff to adopt our community commitment to support each other and treat each other with respect, courtesy and consideration.

The global coronavirus (COVID-19) pandemic means that we need to work to support each other, to behave appropriately and with consideration, and to intervene when we see others failing to uphold the behaviour and standards of the University.

We are committed to offering a welcoming, inclusive and safe environment. We will address negative discriminatory behaviours including those based on stereotypes and prejudiced attitudes.
