Current protection stage
The University is currently in the Advanced Protection Stage.
Advanced Protection is our highest level.
This level includes measures
to continue to deliver essential services. This means that people working on our campuses are focused on supporting residential and essential
operational services only. Essential services for
students will continue.
Moving between stages
The Business Continuity Plan plots in detail the actions we need to take to move the University between these
levels of protection. The University can move between the levels
of protection in a non-linear way, increasing and
relaxing restrictions, or to nuance elements of its
delivery across protection levels, in line with the
Decisions to move the University into a new
protection level are taken by the Vice-Chancellor
following consultation with the Chair of Council and
the Chair of Council’s Audit and Risk Management
Committee, and are communicated to all
members of the University.
