We are expecting all our students to learn, in-person on our campuses at Colchester, Southend and Loughton.
We know that COVID-19 restrictions may still affect many of you. That’s why we will offer a level of flexibility for those who are unable to arrive at our campuses for the start of term.
As soon as you’ve completed online registration, you can access our Remote Study Request Form and submit your request to study remotely.
You should request to study remotely if you are not able to arrive to study on campus before the start date of your course or programme of study. Approval for remote study other than due to international travel restrictions/visa delay issues will only be granted in exceptional circumstances.
If you request to study remotely due to international travel restrictions/visa delay issues and you plan to arrive before the latest date of arrival, as set by your department, your request will normally be approved. If you request to study remotely and you cannot arrive until after this date, we will be unable to approve your request. In this case we will get in touch with you to explain the position and to advise you on what your options are.
