This online session provided an update on the University’s ongoing response to the pandemic and the measures that are in place to ensure that we are ready to welcome students, and the staff who will be teaching and supporting the delivery of teaching safely back to campus. It included updates and guidance on blended learning, the University’s approach to mitigate risk and the health and wellbeing of our community.

It also highlighted the collective responsibility that rests with us all to tackle the spread of Covid-19 by supporting our Campus Pledge and following our Campus Guidelines which can be found here, together with our Campus Commitments document, which sets out our campus experience.
