Our priority throughout the pandemic is to offer our students the best teaching and learning and student experience we can, and to ensure continuity of learning irrespective of whether our students are learning on or off campus.
This has been both an opportunity and a challenge, as we have fast tracked planned advancements to develop the amount of blended learning in our programmes.
We are confident that there are benefits for students from this approach: this is why our Education Strategy, approved before the pandemic, committed to embedding more blended activities in all of our courses over the next five years.
We are confident that our teaching and learning – although different – will remain of the quality and standard that our students expect.
The changes we have put in place in response to COVID-19 to support the delivery of teaching, student support and wider student services have included additional investments of £10m to support blended and online delivery.
We have also offered the option of fully online learning, as well as offering a flexible accommodation policy so that our students can choose how they prefer to study through the year.
If any students have any concerns about their learning, we encourage you to raise these as soon as possible so that they can be addressed.
Please contact your department in the first instance.
This does not affect any of your legal rights under our student contract. We are committed to addressing any problems you may experience so please do let your Department know so we can take action.
