Academic year 2021-2022 likely to start on campus once again

24 June 2021

It looks as though we’ll begin the new academic year in September 2021 on campus once again, with no coronavirus restrictions. This means without face masks and 1.5m distancing. Students who want to may, of course, wear a face mask. 

We know how important it is for students to meet their lecturers and one another. Studying is about collaboration, about working together on research questions, about lively debate with your lecturers and fellow students. Although we’ve seen over the past year that online teaching can work just fine, meeting your lecturers and students in person remains crucial to the excellent teaching that we want to offer. We will therefore provide an inspiring study environment that makes this possible.  

Safety will continue to be a priority. Students who have to quarantine or are unable to participate in our on-campus teaching because of travel restrictions will be offered alternative and hybrid teaching by their degree programmes. What shape this will take will depend on the degree programme/course itself. Students who need to make use of the alternative teaching provision must notify the coordinator of the course they are following via Brightspace.

Remember to also check the coronavirus updates regularly.

We look forward to meeting you on campus!
