In the Department of Mathematical Sciences, most of our teaching programmes will be taught in a way that incorporates in-person and online teaching to deliver a high-quality education.
We are still in the process of finalising the details but at present we are aiming to have some dual delivery teaching form a component of all taught modules. This will consist of sessions taught face-to-face for those on campus which are simultaneously available live via Zoom, so that those unable to come to campus can join and interact too. These sessions could take the form of lectures, classes, or computer labs, depending upon the module.
Some sessions will continue to take place online only for all students. We are still working on the timetable and hope to be able to share more details with you nearer the start of term. In addition to this we will provide you with pre-recorded videos, lecture notes and other materials to support your learning.
If there are further waves of infection in the UK that result in restrictions being imposed, we will do all we can to make sure that your teaching and learning continues uninterrupted over the course of the year. Our approach ensures that if things need to change, we can move to online only teaching at any point.
Joining us on campus
While we expect you to return to campus next year, we do understand that COVID-19 restrictions may affect you. We will continue to offer a level of flexibility for those of you who are unable to arrive at our campus for the start of term due to travel restrictions. Regardless of your location or method of accessing your learning, you will be able to register in the normal way at the start of the academic year through our online system.
In the Department of Mathematical Sciences it will be possible to complete all of your studies remotely if you are unable to attend or return to campus. We can confirm that it will be possible for you to study remotely all year and no physical arrival date is required for those of you who find themselves in a situation where due to restrictions you cannot join us on campus.
