Our learning & teaching approach

Taking the best lessons learned over pandemic, we are committed to an approach to learning and teaching that maximises access to our fantastic in-person resources, while also harnessing the best of digital learning to deliver a more inclusive, creative, and flexible learning experience.

Our on-campus courses are designed to give you a hands-on experience, so we are delivering digitally enhanced learning. This means you'll primarily learn on campus and in-person, with full access to our amazing campus facilities and resources. This on-campus learning will then be enhanced with real-time and guided online learning that you can access in your own time.    

The University must comply with public health measures imposed by the Government. Although the expectation is that we will be able to deliver our courses as they are designed, we may need to vary this at short notice. We will not move to online-only delivery of our courses unless we are required to do so by the Government. Examples of amendments we have made in the past to modules to comply with Government guidance can be found here

 

Covid-safe measures

Based on the Government roadmap, we anticipate that there will be no distancing restrictions in place in our teaching spaces this autumn. However, we may be living with Covid-19 for some time to come. So, we’re also putting in place mitigating measures to keep the campus community safe and to ensure we can quickly reintroduce social distancing measures, if required.
