We are in unprecedented times and the University is responding to a fast-moving global problem.
From the start of the pandemic, our primary concern has been and continues to be the health and wellbeing of our students and staff. All arrangements we are putting in place and decisions we are making are designed to minimise the spread and impact of the COVID-19 virus while ensuring that students can continue and complete their programmes of study.
We are anticipating that the disruption created by the COVID-19 pandemic may well extend into the next academic year. With a heavy heart, we have therefore taken the very difficult decision to postpone the 2020-21 Year Abroad for all students. We have finely balanced this decision with safeguarding our students’ health and safety, providing certainty now to allow students adequate time to plan for this change in circumstance, and to minimise the risk of disruption during the Year Abroad. We remain committed to providing a full international experience and if you have any questions about what this information means for you, please read our FAQ below.
