Current protection stage
The University is currently in the Targeted Protection Stage.
Targeted Protection is our fourth highest level. This level includes protective measures continuing but limited to particular groups of individuals that may be especially vulnerable, or to particular activities that pose heightened levels of risk.
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.
